Welcome to the Combined Services Third World Fund

Covid 19: Temporary closure of Office

Taking cognisance of the latest advice from the HSE, as a precautionary measure, it has been decided to suspend attendance at the Fund Office until further notice.

In the intervening period, as phone service will not be in operation, the Fund may contacted by email:


Any inconvenience caused is very much regretted and it is hoped to return to normal operation as soon as possible.

What We Do: Assisting less fortunate people in developing countries for over 38 years with contributions gratefully received from Employees and Pensioners

RECENT COMPLETED PROJECT - Solar Energy System, Kombolcha, Ethiopia.

In March 2019 a grant of €3,000 was given towards the installation of a Solar Energy System at the Salem Youth Centre. Please click here for more.

What Can You Do: To continue the very valuable work it has been doing over those years, more contributors are badly needed by the Fund.

The requested contribution is modest, e.g. using the deduction at source option it is only one cent or two cent from every ten euros of basic pay/pension. Those staff and pensioners wishing to become contributors may do so by choosing one of the options in this link.
