GOAL allocates additional €250,000 to support its Horn of Africa drought relief efforts

GOAL has allocated an additional €250,000 from its emergency funds, to support the organisation’s effort to alleviate suffering in the Horn of Africa.

The money will be used to provide the basic requirements of life to those affected by the severe drought which has gripped a number of countries in East Africa.

A GOAL team, led by experienced nurse Ann Bourke, will fly out tomorrow for Northern Kenya, to help in the relief operation, targeting malnourished Somali refugees.

The organisation welcomes financial support and can be reached at GOAL, PO Box 19, Dun Laoghaire, Co Dublin, or www.goal.ie
