Concern Worldwide

Concern Worldwide is Ireland’s largest humanitarian and development agency, delivering life-saving and life-changing interventions to some of the world’s poorest and most vulnerable people in over 50 countries since its foundation in 1968. Over the past 50 years, Concern has earned an international reputation for our work in rapid emergency response and innovative health and nutrition, education and livelihoods programming. Concern’s global strategic plan ‘Leaving no one behind’ focuses on tackling hunger, crises and extreme poverty in the world’s toughest most volatile environments. As our work has increasingly taken us to fragile contexts, it has underscored the connections between addressing conflict, humanitarian need, and the achievement of sustainable development.
