Concern FAST Challenge
Thursday 19 November 2020

Join Team Concern Thursday 19 November 2020 and take on one of our FAST challenges.

Could you take on our 24-hour food for the world’s poorest communities?

There has never been a more important time to take part in the FAST. For families already facing extreme poverty, Coronavirus is a crisis on top of a crisis.

You can take part in our traditional food FAST by sacrificing food for a full 24-hours and raise money to save lives. Wherever you are, whoever you are, we will support you every step of the way to help make your FAST a success!

Are you up for the FAST challenge?

Jane and Mark-Moses’ story

Hunger has a devastating impact on families, communities and countries – and Jane and her 1 year old son live this reality this on a daily basis.

For families already facing extreme poverty, coronavirus is a crisis on top of a crisis. Hunger could become more deadly than the disease itself.

In March 2020 Jane attended a Concern Health clinic with Mark-Moses for a vaccination. It was there that the Concern team discovered he weighed 5.9 kg - at 10 months old he weighed the healthy weight of a 3 month old.

He was diagnosed with acute malnutrition.

After a one month course of therapeutic food, Mark- Moses’ weight increased to 6.9 kg, gaining a kilo.

Jane told us that:

His immunity has improved, he is now walking, standing up, has much more energy and is jumping around and smiling

You can help

By taking part in the Concern FAST, you can help us make sure that mums and young children like Jane and Mark-Moses get the food, nutrition and healthcare they need to recover from malnourishment and stay strong and healthy in the long term.

We need your support to help more children like Mark-Moses. Just £60 could make all the difference, and could provide one week of life-saving therapeutic food for 5 malnourished children.

There has never been a more important time to take part in the FAST for families like this.

Contact our team online or call 0800 032 4001 for more information.
