Tuesday afternoon, June 24, 2014, saw The Pierre hotel in Manhattan filled with hope and good will as donors and humanitarian workers gathered to celebrate the 12th Annual Women of Concern Awards. These awards have become a jubilant tradition for Concern Worldwide, an NGO established in 1968 whose mission is to diminish and help prevent extreme poverty in regions of the world that are most in need, including countries in Africa, the Middle East, Asia, and the Caribbean. Siobhan Walsh and Toni Collette, the two honorees for this year’s awards, could not have been more deserving of such recognition. Pictures from the event have been added to the photo gallery. Big thanks to Mari for sending in some great pictures.
Honoree Siobhan Walsh has played a crucial role in Concern’s development and growth for nearly twenty years, and helped establish the organization’s American branch in 1995. Actress Toni Collette, a newer addition to the Concern family, has just this year stepped into her exciting role as Concern’s first Global Ambassador. In the midst of a buzzing cocktail hour prior to the luncheon, Collette took some time to speak with Examiner.com about her involvement with the NGO, and the importance of hugging the world. Their exclusive interview with Toni can be read here.
