World Concern is a non-profit, Christian humanitarian organization providing community development and disaster response to the World' s poor in Africa, Asia, and the Americas. World Concern works in 24 of the poorest countries on Earth, giving hope and opportunities to vulnerable people in great need. World Concern works in a variety of places, but we excel at providing relief in areas not serviced by other agencies. In many of the countries where we work, the people who live there face significant political or religious restrictions. In all cases, we seek out the poorest and most vulnerable. Our staff includes about 1,000 people, assisted by countless volunteers. 95% of World Concern employees are citizens of the countries where we work. By employing locals, it provides financial value so that your donation can help more people. The background of our employees also allows us to better understand and overcome challenges we face daily basis. Additionally, by recruiting citizens from the countries where we work, we employ some of the people we may otherwise provide with aid.
At World Concern, our goal is to provide life, opportunity and hope to all we serve, regardless of race, religion or gender.
