"This crisis in east Africa is still very much an emergency and Concern is delighted that all of the parties involved are making this hugely significant contribution to our work in the region. We are honoured they have chosen Concern as the exclusive beneficiaries.
It is disappointing that such a major ongoing humanitarian situation has largely disappeared from the media headlines. Offering the proceeds from (Ǎhk-to͝ong Bāy-Bi) Covered to Concern’s east Africa appeal also provides a timely reminder that alleviation of the hunger and wider health crisis in the region must not be forgotten and should remain a global priority. ", said Tom Arnold, Concern CEO.
