Concern is assisting 130,000 people on an ongoing basis in Haiti.

The Irish public has contributed a staggering €8.7m to Concern for its work in Haiti. In the current economic climate this is an act of amazing kindness. I take this opportunity to thank you and your readers and wish you a happy New Year.
