CONCERN WORLDWIDE US: Helps People Living in Extreme Poverty Improve Lives

Reputation Dynamics is excited to work with Concern Worldwide US to support corporate development and marketing.

Concern’s mission is to help people living in extreme poverty achieve major improvements in their lives that last and spread without ongoing support from Concern.

Concern was founded in Ireland in 1968 by a small group of people who joined together to respond to the devastating famine in Biafra. The founders launched a nationwide appeal that raised over a quarter of a million pounds in three months, and “Africa Concern”—a non-governmental, non-denominational, humanitarian aid organization—was born. As their work spread beyond Africa in the succeeding years, the organization was renamed Concern Worldwide to reflect their global reach.

Over the course of nearly half a century, Concern has grown from a localized grassroots movement into a highly respected global organization, now implementing programs in 29 countries reaching 7.4 million people.

Concern’s program areas, with particular focus on helping people recover from disasters, include access to nutritious food and adequate health care, and strengthen their resilience to the effects of climate change.
