People of Honduras face “a long hard struggle”: In a short online video the director of Trocaire, Justin Kilcullen, reports from Honduras where Trocaire is helping people gain legal title to their own land. In Honduras families are defenceless against powerful landowners as well as complex and corrupt political and judicial systems. Families live their lives subjected to threats, intimidation and violence, simply because they are poor and voiceless. They need support to protect themselves, to stand up for their rights and make a better life for the future. This Lent your support will help countless invisible communities who are living in fear and in danger simply because they living in poverty.
