Irelands CUs help fight poverty in Ghana
DUBLIN, Ireland (8/25/08)--Northern Ireland credit unions are participating in the Irish League of Credit Unions' (ILCU) campaign to fight poverty, malnutrition, HIV and AIDS in Ghana--a country in Africa. ILCU is providing nearly US$89,000 plus technical assistance to support the development of credit unions in Ghana (Belfast Telegraph July 28). Some of the funding will be used to help credit unions in Ghana become self-sustaining units that support poor local communities, according to Kevin Helferty, chairman of the ILCU Foundation, which provides assistance in developing credit unions in Third World countries. ICLU contributes more than $740,000 annually to the foundation’s efforts worldwide.
