As people all around the world celebrate everything that is great about the Irish, we would like to take the opportunity to acknowledge the Irish charity, Concern Worldwide.
Concern Worldwide helps thousands of people every year and was started in Ireland back in 1968 working in Africa. Back then it was known as Africa concern and was established in the home of Kay and John O’Loughlin Kennedy on 19 March 1968.
In the 40 years since it was started the organisation now operates in 25 of the world’s poorest nations, helping some of the most vulnerable people by working to eradicate poverty and suffering. Concern Worldwide works with the people it tries to help by enabling them to improve their lives. The organisation shares its experience and knowledge with decision makers at the local, national and international level, as it seeks to mitigate extreme poverty.
Over 40 years Concern Worldwide has achieved much, however with an estimated 1.3 billion people still living in extreme poverty a lot remains to be done.
