Concern is committed to working with the world’s poorest people. Remembering Concern in your will means we can keep responding to emergencies and help people lift themselves out of the cycle of poverty and hunger.
What could my legacy do?
- $130 could support a vulnerable family through emergencies by providing essential food aid.
- $7,000 could build an irrigation system for a whole village in Ethiopia helping the community to grow more and better crops.
- $68,300 could build two schools in Niger with three classrooms in each for local children.
