Giving in Lent
This year’s Trócaire box looks at land rights and their importance to people all over the world. Drawing on three stories from people around the world who struggle to hold onto their land, it tells the harrowing tale of the injustice of displacement. Indigenous people and women are particular vulnerable to loss of land rights, the latter often losing out to big corporations and the former to societies that view women as unable to hold land.
Miriam Gormally spoke with Eoghan Rice from Trócaire to find out more about the issue of land and how the work they do in terms of helping people secure ownership to their land is so vital in terms of allowing a community to lift itself up and be strong.
