Concern at 55

This year, Concern celebrates 55 years of tackling extreme poverty all over the world.

55 years of working together to change the world

This year, we mark with great pride Concern Worldwide’s 55th Anniversary. Our work started with one emergency response in one country 55 years ago, and it continues today with multiple responses to increasingly complex and compounding emergencies throughout the world.

Concern Worldwide’s 55th Anniversary is a celebration of our consistent, steadfast commitment to working with the world’s most vulnerable communities to transform their lives and a sobering reminder of how much work remains before us. It is a moment that challenges us to renew this commitment as conflict, climate change, and hunger threaten to reverse decades of progress toward ending extreme poverty.   

Concern 55: We Still Believe

Millions of lives transformed, so much more potential.

As we celebrate this milestone, we’re not pausing for a moment because we are needed now more than ever. Conflict, climate change, and hunger continue to perpetuate a cycle of extreme poverty that devastates lives worldwide, and we continue to respond. We maintain deep roots from our earliest days in effective emergency response while working to achieve lasting change through long-term development programs. 

These are just a few of the recent chapters in our story…
