We are an international humanitarian organization. We work around the globe to save lives, defeat poverty, and achieve social justice. We put women and girls in the center because we know that we cannot overcome poverty until all people have equal rights and opportunities.


One person in every ten will go to bed hungry tonight.

Six children die from hunger every minute. 

CARE works around the globe to provide food aid and water access. Our teams also work to build resilience amongst communities so they can survive the ever-increasing impacts of climate change on agriculture and food insecurity.

But food needs only keep growing as conflicts and climate change make food insecurity even worse. We are now facing a dramatic record of 274 million people needing life-saving aid around the world.

Support us to help fight food insecurity and poverty in countries in crisis.

We cannot eradicate poverty and achieve social justice while inequality persists.

Everyday and everywhere, women are the most exposed to discrimination and poverty. One in every three women suffers from violence throughout her life.

Forced marriage, inequalities, school deprivation…, discrimination against women lock them into poverty and has impacts on economic performance, food security, health and more.

That is why CARE fights for women and girls’ rights and for gender equality.In more than 100 countries, our teams work to:

  • Empower women to start their own businesses and gain independence
  • Send girls and young women to school
  • Bring an end to violence against women

Together we can give girls, women and families the hope and opportunity they deserve.

Natural disasters, droughts and floods are increasing, all over the world. And their consequences get even more severe every time.

Climate change affects all regions of the world, but the most vulnerable communities are the hardest hit, though they are often the least responsible.

Our teams already work around the globe to help communities adapt to climate change - anticipating risks and building resilience – and to provide emergency assistance during natural disasters.

The emergency is now. It affects all of us. And it will get even worse if we do nothing. We have the power to act right now!

Conflicts, natural disaters, food crises, pandemics…, humanitarian crises keep increasing on and getting more and more intense.

Can you imagine losing everything overnight and having to flee with your family? Can you imagine struggling to find shelter, to get enough to eat?

As needs keep growing, CARE strives to work wherever there is a major crisis. We are one of the few NGOs to act:

  • Before emergencies, to prepare populations to risks;
  • During emergencies to provide vital aid;
  • And after, to help rebuild infrastructure and vital services

In 2022, 1 person in every 29 will need emergency humanitarian aid in the world. Your support is vital !
