Concern welcomes increase in overseas development assistance in Budget 2022
Concern Worldwide welcomes the increase in overseas development assistance, announced in today’s Budget, which reflects the support of the Irish people for overseas aid and our collective commitment to responding to crises.
The Government announced a €140 million increase in overseas development assistance for next year, bringing the total budget to over €1 billion for the first time.
“Ireland’s overseas development assistance programme is consistently ranked as one of the highest quality programmes in the world, and is something that Irish people are rightly proud of,” Concern CEO Dominic MacSorley said. “The increase comes at a very challenging time with 41 million people in 43 countries currently at risk of dying from hunger.”
