At Instant Impact, we firmly believe in the responsibility of businesses to give back to society and make a positive impact on the world. That's why we are proud to partner with Concern Worldwide, an organisation that shares our vision of a world free from poverty, fear, and oppression.
For over 50 years, Concern has been working tirelessly to transform lives, rebuild communities, and fight extreme poverty. As a team, we voted to support the health and nutrition programme which in 2022 alone reached 8.3 million people. Together, we strive to make a difference and support those living in the most challenging circumstances.
About the charity:
Concern Worldwide's journey began in 1968 when a group of compassionate individuals initiated a large-scale aid operation in response to famine and conflict in Biafra. Their efforts marked the humble beginnings of Concern, which has since grown into a global organisation. Today, Concern is powered by a team of more than 3,500 highly skilled and dedicated professionals hailing from 50 countries. Their collective experience and commitment are the driving force behind the organisation's remarkable achievements.
Concern Worldwide's mission is clear: to stand beside those living in extreme poverty and work hand in hand to rebuild and transform lives, livelihoods, and communities. Year after year, they tirelessly reach out to 25 million people living on less than $2 a day, ensuring that no one is left behind. From conflict zones in Syria and Somalia to flood-affected areas in Pakistan and Bangladesh, Concern's specialist teams venture into the hardest-to-reach places, delivering life-saving and life-changing interventions.
In times of crisis and emergencies, Concern Worldwide responds rapidly with much-needed aid and support. Their ability to act swiftly and efficiently has saved countless lives and provided hope in the darkest moments. But their work goes beyond immediate relief. Concern implements innovative programmes in health and nutrition, livelihoods, and education to create sustainable solutions for the long term. By addressing the root causes of poverty and working with local communities, they empower people to shape their futures positively.
Concern's commitment to reaching the most vulnerable and isolated communities sets them apart. In areas where few dare to tread, Concern's teams fearlessly venture, bringing hope and assistance to those who need it most. Their presence in conflict zones and disaster-stricken regions is a testament to their unwavering dedication to making a difference, regardless of the challenges they face.
At Instant Impact we have always been about more than just profit and we recognise the importance of investing in social causes. Our partnership with Concern Worldwide allows us to contribute to their mission and support their life-changing work as they continue building a world without poverty and oppression.
