Foreign Affairs Committee to consider work of Christian Aid Ireland

May 6th, 2014 - Pat Breen

Representatives from Christian Aid Ireland come before the Oireachtas Joint Committee on Foreign Affairs and Trade tomorrow to discuss their work, with specific reference to issues in Angola and Sierra Leone.

Sorley McCaughey, Head of Policy and Advocacy and Karol Balfe, Advisor on Governance, Peace Building and Human Rights will address the Committee.

Chairman of the Committee Pat Breen TD says: “Christian Aid Ireland works to overcome poverty in some of the world’s poorest communities in around 50 countries worldwide. As well as delivering an overview of the agency’s work in these countries, Mr McCaughey and Ms Balfe are expected to outline specific concerns in relation to Angola and Sierra Leone.

“Christian Aid has been highlighting the deteriorating humanitarian situation in Angola, with over 1.8 million people experiencing food insecurity due to poor harvests. Despite a rapidly developing economy, inequality in Angola remains stark and the presentation tomorrow is expected to point to shortcomings in the Angolan government response to the impending crisis.

“Tomorrow’s meeting will also include a discussion on evidence that Sierra Leone, one of the poorest countries in Africa, spent more on tax breaks for multinationals than on its development priorities, with mining firms the biggest beneficiaries.”

The meeting takes place tomorrow Wednesday 7 May at 2:30 pm in Committee Room 1, LH 2000. It can be viewed online here:
