Founded in 1945 to send ‘CARE packages’ to people recovering from war, CARE has been fighting poverty and delivering humanitarian aid in the world’s poorest countries for 70 years.

With emergency-response experts in over 60 countries — 95% of them citizens of those countries, with local knowledge and expertise — we are on the ground to meet the immediate needs of people and communities when disaster strikes, and to support them to rebuild their lives and livelihoods afterwards.

Last year we assisted more than 65 million people to respond to and recover from disasters, and to find long-term solutions to poverty.
