During 2013, the people of Mid Ulster donated a total of £130,054 to Concern.

Peter Anderson, Head of Concern Worldwide, said this generosity is not taken for granted.

“It is what makes our work possible, and I feel it is important that our supporters know how much we value their commitment. Special thanks should also be given to our support groups and volunteers who continue to give up their time to raise vital funds for Concern,” he said.

“After Typhoon Haiyan devastated parts of the Philippines, our supporters responded generously, helping Concern provide emergency aid to thousands of people affected. We have also been responding to the humanitarian crisis in Syria and Lebanon,” he added.

As well as their emergency work in various countries, they also place great emphasis on long-term development projects, empowering people to tackle hunger.
