A devastating earthquake. War. Famine.

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

How do we do it?

  • 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.


CARE provides urgent and immediate relief in natural disasters, conflict situations and humanitarian crises worldwide. Recent examples include conflict in Mali (2013), Hurricane Sandy in Cuba (2012), Sahel regional food crisis (2012), East Africa drought (2011), Japan earthquake (2011), floods in Pakistan (2010) and the 2010 Haiti earthquake.
