Emergency Programme

A family in South Sudan receives nutritious food. Crystal Wells, South Sudan, 2014

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

Last year alone Concern responded to 45 emergencies in 25 countries and helped over 4.6 million people. 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 (€30), 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.
