Why Get Involved

As human beings we have a responsibility to ensure that all people regardless of colour, race or creed have an equal right to the basic needs to survive. these needs such as food, clothing, medication and shelter are a right of all people in our world. It is upon us “that have”, to ensure that we take this responsibility with the utmost seriousness. If we all make an effort to assist our fellow human beings to attain their basic needs, then we are taking our responsibility seriously.

TOUCH Ireland projects focus mainly on vulnerable children and their plight. These children are mostly orphaned as a result of the HIV/Aids Crisis but also suffer from poverty and other related diseases.
