Dominic MacSorley, CEO of Irish humanitarian charity Concern Worldwide
2018 was a truly remarkable milestone for Concern Worldwide as we marked 50 years since our founding in 1968. What began as a simple fundraising drive has evolved over five decades into a global humanitarian and development organisation with over 3,500 dedicated staff across 25 countries of operation.
