Since the terrible earthquake struck Haiti, charities have been doing everything they can to provide much-needed support in helping the country. However, although Trocaire are working to help Haiti, they are also running their Trocaire box Lenten appeal.
This year the campaign is about people who have been forced from their homes by war. More than 26 million people have had to abandon their homes because of conflict and have been forced to seek safety elsewhere.
Although Haiti needs our help, we shouldn't forget about others in need.
