Award-winning food writer, food photographer and TV presenter, Donal Skehan, is currently in Malawi to witness the work Concern is doing to improve people’s lives there.
With a population of around 16 million people, Malawi is one of the poorest countries in the world. Hunger and malnutrition are serious issues, exacerbated by a dependency on subsistence farming and a vulnerability to food crises caused by climate change.
Concern has been working in the country since 2002 with a range of holistic programmes, designed to address the many issues contributing to suffering and poverty in the country.
While in Malawi, Donal has been getting a taste (sometimes literally!) of the work we’re doing there. He is also getting a glimpse of how the Irish public has been doing their bit – through the Concern Christmas Gifts programme – to help families in Malawi improve their lives and prospects.
Give a gift that really matters this Christmas.
