Death is never easy. Saying goodbye is never easy.


It takes time for the heart to heal.


Sometimes that never fully happens as the love we have for the people we hold dear can be so strong.


Many of our donors make donations in honour of their loved ones to help keep their memory alive.


It makes our donors feel good to know that there is at least one family in the developing world better off because of the life-changing gift made in the name of their loved one.


 For the last number of years, we have honoured all the departed souls by holding an All Souls Day Mass. This year, for the second year, Fr David Conway will say Mass in the community of Barpello, East Pokot, Kenya. This is an area that knows what it is like to receive the gift of hope.


To date, the community, which is very seriously affected by drought, has received funding for two boreholes, which supply clean water to hundreds of families everyday.


Prior to Bóthar’s intervention, families were drinking water that was filthy and contaminated. It was a daily struggle to survive. So many lives have been transformed through the gift of these boreholes, that we have agreed to fundraise for a third.


A suggested offering of €50 will go a long way towards our water programme in East Pokot but please give whatever you can afford.


By giving the gift of clean water, you are giving a new lease of life to hundreds of families.


I very much hope that this gesture gives you comfort as you remember your loved one.
