Trócaire 2020

Published on February 15, 2020

Around the world, families are living under constant threat of conflict, drought and land grabs. In the face of those threats, many women hold their families together, battling enormous odds to provide for their children.

Lent 2020 highlights the different ways in which women overcome the odds to keep their families safe from harm. This Lent, we are focusing on two families, one in Kenya and one in Honduras, to highlight how mothers work to protect their families and communities from the devastating impact of climate change and from the actions of corporations.

Madris and Angela are two such women. We think of them and women like them all over the world this Lent.
