Disaster can strike at anytime. When it does, it is vital to respond quickly, efficiently and effectively.

Over the last two years, Concern has directly assisted nearly three million people caught up in emergency situations across 23 countries, including the unprecedented Ebola outbreak across Sierra Leone and Liberia and the 7.8 magnitude earthquake that struck Nepal in April 2015. No matter what the cause we aim to be on the ground as soon as we can, within hours if needed. Our dedicated emergency team is always ready.

Depending on the severity of the situation some of the supplies we give include: Emergency Food (€34), Blankets (€28) or our life saving Family Survival Pack (€50)

After the emergency, we continue on to help people rebuild their lives and reduce the impact of future crises.
