Letters to the Editor, ‘Concern Worldwide thanks people of Newry for support’

Dear Editor,

On behalf of Concern Worldwide, I would sincerely like to thank the readers of the Newry Times for your support during 2015.

Letters to the EditorLast year, the people of Newry donated £204,027 to help us tackle hunger, poverty and injustice in some of the toughest places of the world.

Every day, more than 3,000 Concern staff are on the ground working hard to transform lives. However, that is only possible with your support – you make it happen. And last year alone, because of your generosity, we reached more people than ever – seven million people across 27 of the world’s poorest countries.

Over the past twelve months we have achieved an extraordinary amount – responding to emergencies in South Sudan, Pakistan, Nepal and Syria, while our nutrition, health, education and livelihoods programmes continue to deliver real transformative change for many vulnerable people. None of this would happen without your help.

To local volunteers and members of the Newry support group, I would like to offer a special word of thanks. Your continued dedication and commitment is really appreciated – and I am grateful to you for organising a Christmas street collection on 12 December which raised a total of £550.

Whether it’s a farmer in Africa who can’t grow enough to feed his or her family, mothers who cannot access basic healthcare and nutrition for their children or families forced to flee their home in the wake of devastating conflict or disaster, because of you, Concern is there saving and transforming lives – and building a better tomorrow, today.

Peter Anderson – NI Director of Concern (UK)
