Women of Concern: photo gallery

Last night, at the Chester Beatty Library in Dublin, we launched the Women of Concern group.

This is a group of Irish people who support Concern’s work with women in the world’s poorest countries. Here’s some photos from the event:

The guests included Miriam O’Callaghan, Darina Allen, Ivana Bacik, Nora Owen, Amy Huberman and Marian Keyes. They were joined by over a hundred women (and a few men).

Life in Zimbabwe

Miriam O’Callaghan introduced the first speaker, Concern’s Angela O’Neill de Guilio. Angela painted a powerful picture of life for a poor woman in Zimbabwe.

Lives turned around

We also heard from Carine Roenen, from Concern in Haiti (3634), via a live telephone link. Carine explained how the lives of extremely poor women and their families have been turned around with Concern’s support.
