A Humanitarian Crisis – with Réiseal Ní Chéilleachair

How can you stay home during the Covid-19 pandemic if you have nothing to eat? Our guest is Head of International Advocacy at Concern Worldwide, Réiseal Ní Chéilleachair and with over 12 years experience of working in some of the worlds poorest countries she understands that the hunger can be more deadly than the virus.

She outlines what Covid-19 means for humanitarian programmes, the impact it is having on those who are already extremely poor and how the economic impact has the potential to worsen these already difficult situations. Réiseal also outlines steps governments and citizens can take in a human rights based model that can avert the worst outcomes of this pandemic.
