Abstract

2015 was an extraordinarily challenging year, a year in which the humanitarian situation in Syria continued to deteriorate, and the exodus of refugees from the country intensified dramatically. The number of displaced people, surpassed 60 million, reaching the highest levels since the Second World War.

It was also a year in which a powerful El Niño, combined with the worsening effects of climate change, began to really take its toll, with drought and flash floods contributing to chronic food insecurity across much of Eastern and Southern Africa.

It was also a year that Concern’s 3,500 staff across all of our countries of operation continued to work tirelessly for those most in need. In 2015, we reached 22.7 million people in 28 countries. This is an enormous achievement.

Our expenditure grew to €177.2 million, the biggest in the organisation’s history and testament to the support we receive from our donors and supporters across the world. In 2015, we were delighted to open a new office in South Korea, our first new fundraising office in 20 years and we welcomed our new, energetic Korean team into the Concern family.
