Actor and Concern Worldwide global ambassador, Toni Collette has just returned from a visit to Haiti where she saw our work first-hand.

Four and a half years ago, the country was brought to a standstill after a devastating earthquake destroyed the capital of Port-au-Prince. 

The star of Muriel's Wedding and The Sixth Sense describes the resilience of ordinary Haitians – many of whom continue to endure tough living conditions – and how much they’ve achieved with Concern’s help.
