CARE helps women and gifts in developing countries lift themselves and their families out of poverty and out of crisis.
We bring people together to end inequality. Not just for one person, but a whole community. Not just for now, but for a lifetime and across generations.
We develop solutions with women and girls and their communities to tackle the big issues facing them like climate change, economic empowerment, food security and emergency relief in times of crisis or disaster.
CARE is a leading international humanitarian and development organization dedicated to saving lives, defeating poverty and achieving social justice.
Founded in 1945, CARE began delivering CARE Packages to displaced people in Europe following the Second World War. Today, CARE Canada focuses on humanitarian relief; food security and resilience to climate change; sexual, reproductive and maternal health; and women’s empowerment.
We put women and girls in the centre because we know that we cannot overcome poverty until all people have equal rights and opportunities. When equipped with the proper resources, women and girls have the power to lift whole families and entire communities out of poverty.
CARE works in 93 countries around the world, reaching more than 62 million people last year alone. We seek a world of hope, inclusion and social justice, where poverty has been overcome and all people live with dignity and security.
