Comhlámh Annual Report 2022:
Foreward by the Chairperson, John Durcan
Dear Members and Supporters of Comhlámh,
2022 was an exciting and fruitful year for Comhlámh. It was a year that saw us welcome our new CEO, Dr Caroline Murphy, and develop a five-year strategic plan, ‘Global Solidarity in Action: Comhlámh Strategic Plan 2023-2028’. The strategy sets out Comhlámh’s vision and mission for the coming years and provides the context for a new multi-annual strategic programme of work funded by Irish Aid. Responding to the scale and urgency of challenges facing our interdependent world, our new strategy supports transformative volunteering, active citizenship and activism based on global solidarity and ecological sustainability.
Comhlámh continued to see the success of the First Wednesday discussions, with participants and audiences expressing increased understanding and awareness of the topics we addressed. They also reported a sense of connection and solidarity with the people directly impacted by the issues.
