Where we work
Our annual report
When disaster strikes, Concern acts quickly to save lives. Your support through a major gift to our Emergency Response Fund will help ensure that we can act quickly when help is needed, and allows us to plan ahead, helping communities to cope and build resilience against future crises.
Concern works in some of the poorest and most fragile countries, many of which are highly vulnerable to emergencies such as conflict, natural disasters, food crises and drought. In recent years we have delivered live saving support during emergencies such as the Rohingya refugee crisis and Cyclone Idai in Malawi and Mozambique.
Your support allows us to:
Ensure people can access aid
Supporting us ensures people can continue to access food, shelter and healthcare during the most challenging of circumstances.
Better prepare communities for future crisis

Rohingya Refugee Crisis
Since August 2017, over 702,000 Rohingya refugees have fled violence in Myanmar and crossed the border to Cox’s Bazaar, one of the poorest regions in Bangladesh, joining the hundreds of thousands of other Rohingya refugees already living in the area. They arrive at the border exhausted, with only what they can carry, often nothing at all, in urgent need of shelter, medical care, water and food. Already working in Bangladesh, Concern respond to meet the immediate needs of the most vulnerable and provide food rations. The support of our donors enables teams on the ground to mobilise additional supplies and provide life-saving nutrition support.
The couple owned a shop and lived in a two-storey house, but when the military burnt both their house and their business, they lost everything and had to flee.
*Kaseem and *Mahfuja, who was pregnant at the time, ran from their village with their four young children. They were terrified that they were going to die. Now the family of eight lives in a cramped two-room temporary shelter. But even here, they don’t feel safe, as the roof has blown off three times in heavy monsoon storms.
I used to have people working for me. Now I have nothing. It would be good if I had the opportunity here in the camps to earn a living. We have six children to look after and feed.
