Emergency Relief

In an emergency, timing is crucial. CARE has the resources and experience necessary to respond quickly to deal with major crises.

What CARE is Doing: 

CARE is a leading humanitarian organization. We are often first on the ground in an emergency and the last to leave. We focus on:

  • Immediate response and long-term recovery – CARE is among the first to arrive and the last to leave, helping communities recover and rebuild when disaster strikes.
  • Refugee support – Meeting emergency life-saving needs and providing longer-term development assistance, while helping maintain people’s dignity and respect. CARE works with refugees, internally-displaced persons and local populations who face the sudden influx of people in their community.
  • A special focus on women and girls – Women and girls are particularly vulnerable during an emergency. CARE ensures their unique security, food and health needs are met.
  • Preparing in advance – Our teams are on the ground right now working to prepare the most vulnerable communities should an emergency arise.
