We Turn Walking Into Action

The work of Concern America’s trained field volunteers, health promoter practitioners, water system builders, and educators is currently impacting the living conditions of over 255,000 people.

Even more so, the transformative work of Concern America’s community-led health model invests in the people themselves, building upon their own experiences, knowledge and skills to save and sustain lives.

However, we recognize that 1 in 10 people (785 million) still lack basic services (World Health Organization, 2019) and are further impacted by the ongoing pandemic.

This is why we need you.

Together, let’s walk out of poverty and create community-led health care that works for all.

Frequently Asked Questions

We encourage all Walkers to wear masks when in large crowds and at Holy Spirit.  And we ask that you do wear a mask when inside in the bathrooms.

There is limited parking at Holy Spirit. We encourage you to park in the assigned areas of the Holy Spirit’s lot, on the street (in front or behind the parish grounds), or the local school parking lot . Please see the map for more clarification.

Because of COVID precautions, we are having a very limited snack and beverage availability. We will have water, granola bars, and an assortment of fruit available that morning for all. Please bring your own coffee/tea and a bottle to fill for your drinking water!
