The Republic of Korea is in the unique position of having made the transition from being an aid recipient to an aid donor. With economic success,
has come the recognition of a need to help other less fortunate nations and communities.
In only a few years, Concern Worldwide Korea has made huge strides in making significant contributions to the Concern Worldwide international aid programs.
Concern Worldwide Korea requires continued financial support to increase and improve its development programs.

“Koreans know what humanitarian aid is through their painful history. We hope various agencies will come together in Korea to take part in the work
of recovery and peace-building in extremely poor countries, together with Concern Worldwide.”
– Jun Mo Lee, Country Manager, Concern Worldwide Korea
1,000 days from conception to a child’s second birthday gives a child a healthy foundation for life. In the past, Koreans have known hunger and deprivation and are now showing a willingness to help those less fortunate than themselves. Until now, this campaign has been the core channel to connect individual donors to overseas beneficiaries and program participants.

Concern Worldwide Korea generates income from a variety of sources. The largest portion of income consists of individual donors’ contributions, which comprise 85% of total income. In 2017, for the first time, we received 6.2% of the total donation income from the Korean International Cooperation Agency (KOICA) to promote the self-reliance of the poorest in Ethiopia. The program’s main target is female householders with children in the Amhara region, an area in northern Ethiopia. Concern has provided pullets, ewes, modern beekeeping, and capital fund support for entrepreneurship.

The Global Hunger Index (GHI), a series of reports jointly published by the Concern Worldwide, Welthungerhilfe (WHH), and International Food Policy Research Institute (IFPRI), tracks the state of hunger - worldwide and country by country - and spotlights those regions and countries where action to address hunger is most urgently needed. In 2017, Concern Worldwide Korea held an international conference “Global Hunger Report” sharing Global Hunger Index and the latest humanitarian issues with Korean stakeholders. The latest GHI publication can be read at https://www.globalhungerindex.org
