Mahlet (13) is the girl on this year’s Trócaire Box.  She comes from a small mountainous village in northern Ethiopia that is suffering from an ongoing drought due to climate change. The community are working harder than ever to support themselves, but the unreliable rainfall is making it difficult to grow their crops. Trócaire is working to change this.

With your support we are helping hard working communities in some of the poorest parts of the world to adapt to the changing climate, and grow food for their families to eat. For children like Mahlet, fighting drought means better health and more nutritious food.
