In Dominic’s words

More than 850 million people went to bed hungry last night. This is why Concern exists: it is people reaching out to people. We value hugely the confidence our supporters show in Concern to work with those who need our help the most. Without this trust, our work would not be possible. I am delighted to accept this position.
