All around the world, people are being forced by conflict to flee their homes with only the items they can carry.
Scared and away from everything they know, they need support to rebuild their lives.

“Families, including many with small children, are fleeing with whatever clothes and food they can carry, in bitterly cold conditions, often facing huge queues to reach safety,” said Concern CEO Dominic MacSorley.

Concern has worked with survivors of conflict, disaster and those living in extreme poverty for the past 50 years.
