Christian Aid

Christian Aid is an agency of the churches in Ireland and the UK. We work wherever the need is greatest – irrespective of religion or race.

Christian Aid works in more than 50 countries with over 600 partners.

Because we believe in strengthening people to find their own solutions to the problems they face, we support local organisations, which are best placed to understand local needs. We also give help on the ground through 16 overseas offices.

We strive for a new world transformed by an end to poverty and we campaign to change the rules that keep people poor.

Christian Blind Mission (CBM)

Based upon our Christian principles, Christian Blind Mission (CBM) exists to cure and prevent blindness, deafness and other disabilities.

We also support blind, visually impaired and otherwise disabled people in those areas of greatest need worldwide. We do this through medical intervention, education and rehabilitation, emergency relief and in capacity building through training, research, advocacy and awareness creation.

In order to achieve this we seek to generate income from individuals and organisations and by developing partnerships internationally.

Christina Noble Children’s Foundation


The mission of the Christina Noble Children’s Foundation is to give all children their childhood by providing the necessary protection, care and education for them to sleep in peace, surrounded by love. Without this caring, protective foundation in life, the future of any child is bleak. A happy and secure childhood is one of the most precious and enduring memories we can have and sets the foundation for the life we lead as adults. The opportunity to experience a happy childhood is the right of every child.

Clann Mór

Founded in the late 1970’s, a support group was established which provided a meeting place/focus point for parents and friends of people with intellectual disabilities.

In time the group turned its attention to the prospect of the providing Respite Care. They secured a loan to buy a suitable property (St. Oliver’s, Commons Road, Navan). The company purchased this property in 1982. The set-up and preparation for occupation was all done on a voluntary basis, with local companies donating a lot of the contents.
