When it comes to responding to an emergency, timing is crucial. That’s why CARE is fortunate to have the resources and experience necessary to act quickly to deal with major crises.
Every year, CARE provides urgent and immediate relief in natural disasters, conflict situations and humanitarian crises worldwide.
Our philosophy is simple, we are among the first to arrive and among the last to leave. But before disaster strikes, our team is committed to being on the ground working to prepare the most vulnerable communities in advance should an emergency arise.
CARE Canada helps communities create plans to deal with emergencies and works to ensure they receive food, water, shelter, health care and other emergency relief supplies when they need them the most. In addition, CARE helps communities recover and rebuild after disaster strikes.
Last year, CARE's emergency response and recovery programs reached 12.5 million people in 47 countries, with special emphasis on those disproportionately affected by disasters: women, children and the elderly.
You can help empower communities around the world to be stronger in the face of future disasters by supporting CARE Canada.
CARE responds to emergencies throughout the year, and empowers women, girls, men and boys to be healthy and resilient long before and long after disasters strike.
Donations to CARE Canada allow us to continue this vital work, as well as our daily efforts to fight poverty and defend dignity worldwide.
