Tearfund was founded in the UK in 1968 to help the people affected by war in the short-lived republic of Biafra, southern Nigeria. It is recognised worldwide as a leading relief and development agency. Tearfund has operated in the island of Ireland for more than 40 years with a strong network of supporters and churches.

In 2008, Tearfund Ireland was launched as an independent charity. As a sister organisation we work closely with Tearfund in the UK, sharing their vision and values and benefiting from their considerable experience and expertise. We will continue to be both spiritually passionate and professionally excellent making a real difference in the lives of the most vulnerable people.
