Jonel’s means of earning a living – his boat and his crab traps -  were washed away by Typhoon Haiyan and his home destroyed.  In this video, he describes how Concern helped him rebuild his house and recover livelihood, first by employing him in our boatyard, and subsequently by giving him a new boat

When Typhoon Haiyan carved its path of destruction across the Philippines in November 2013, it left thousands dead and millions homeless.

Patrick is a member of Burial Team 7, one of the 14 teams that Concern manages as part of its effort to stop the spread of Ebola. The work undertaken by burial teams is essential in the fight to rid Sierra Leone of the disease. 

Millions of lives are devastated by disasters every year. With such a huge statistic it can be hard to visualise what that really means for individual families. Take part in #SendSeeds and see how your donations can make a huge difference for families who are trying to rebuild their lives.
