Trócaire Gift of Water

Your gift of water is, quite simply, the gift of life.

For over one billion people throughout the world finding a reliable, clean water supply is a daily struggle.

Dirty river water carries bacteria that can lead to sickness and even death. New mothers, babies and the elderly are particularly vulnerable. But a clean water well can transform a community.

Your thoughtful gift will fund water projects in the world’s poorest places. In addition to wells, irrigation systems, water conservation and recycling systems ensure crops survive in the harshest conditions. This allows farmers to grow food to sell, maintain healthy livestock and feed their families.

This gift is part of our Livelihood’s programme.


Each Trócaire Gift is sourced locally and sustainably from the country where it is needed. So the gifts not only support families in the world’s poorest places, they grow the local economy too. You will receive a card as a symbol of the Trócaire Gift you have purchased. You can then give this card to a friend, family member or client to explain the meaning of the gift. Alternatively an e-card can be emailed directly to your chosen recipient.

When you buy online, you can choose either a traditional gift card or an e-card. The traditional card will be posted out to you, or if you choose to send an e-card, it will be emailed to your chosen recipient immediately or at a time you schedule. Your e-card can be sent to anyone you choose – a friend, family member or client. You can enter a personal message alongside a description of how your gift will support families and communities in the developing world..

You can buy Trócaire Gifts cards in person at selected retail outlets countrywide, by phone, by post, and by fax. Full information of where and how to purchase your gifts is available on our Trócaire Gifts Buy Offline page.
