Tackling hunger, transforming lives

You are here


Mary Robinson led a hunger lecture and panel discussion in Belfast on 8 October.

Concern Worldwide is delighted to announce Toni Collette as our first official global ambassador. She will help us in our work with the world’s poorest people to transform their lives.

We’re getting ready for our annual fundraiser: the Concern Fast.

Bake a Difference, running throughout October, is great way of getting family, friends and colleagues together in support of a worthy cause. You can do this while enjoying some of your favourite guilty pleasures. 

This year's Global Hunger Index is called "building resilence to achieve food and nutrition security." Released by Concern Worldwide, International Food Policy Research Institute and Welthungerhilfe, it records the state of hunger worldwide, spotlighting countries and regions where action is most needed.

The 2013 Global Hunger Index report was published today. It calls for better ways to enable the world’s poorest people to become more resilient to hunger in the long-term.

Thousands of people have already signed up to our cowpea campaign. Now, we want you to put even more pressure on the UK government to end hunger by tweeting your MP.

Concern Worldwide is pleased to announce the appointment of Mr Tom Arnold, former CEO of the organisation, as Concern’s Special Representative for Hunger.  

Concern Worldwide’s work distributing cowpeas in the Tahoua Region of Niger has proven very successful. Out of 240 people we’ve worked with there, 228 have chosen to receive the drought-resistant seeds over cash.

Thanks to Concern Worldwide’s irrigation farming schemes in Malawi, families like Annie’s are no longer going hungry.

Our work wouldn’t be possible without your generous support.
