For nearly 50 years,

Concern has worked in partnership with the world’s poorest and most vulnerable people to transform their lives. We began out of a spontaneous response to the suffering caused by the Biafran War.

Now we are in 29 countries across the globe, sometimes responding to emergencies and sometimes working in countries for decades. We always strive to do whatever it takes to achieve lasting change. We believe that extreme poverty can be eliminated — and we act on that belief every day.

We work with the world’s most vulnerable people, with a focus on women and children.

Concern works in 29 of the world’s poorest countries and in some of its hardest-to-reach places.

We don’t believe in cookie-cutter aid

Instead, we work in active collaboration with communities to provide a sustainable path out of poverty.

We are dedicated to the reduction of suffering

Concern’s work on the ground is changing lives. We make sure more than 90 cents of every donated dollar goes directly to our programs.

We don’t leave when the cameras do

We stay until communities are healthy, resilient, and empowered to thrive without our ongoing support.
