Response to Syrian Crisis
How is CARE responding?
To date, CARE has reached more than 273,000 people in Jordan.
This includes supporting refugees and host families with cash to buy food, pay rent and bills, seek medical care and purchase household essentials. CARE also distributed blankets, mattresses and heaters to help families face the cold winter months.
In addition, we run support centres for refugees, where Syrian families have received relief items and information on obtaining health care and other services.
In Lebanon, CARE is working to meet refugees’ most pressing needs, mainly providing water, sanitation, shelter and cash assistance in Beirut, Mount Lebanon and Tripoli.
These projects have so far reached more than 25,000 people.
CARE is raising awareness among refugees of sexual exploitation and other forms of gender-based violence to protect them from abuse. We also plan to help refugees with cash and other material assistance to help meet their most basic needs.
CARE is providing life-saving emergency assistance to people affected by the conflict in Syria. We are providing food and emergency supplies to families, and emergency medical equipment and support for women.
CARE is impartial and neutral and we do not take sides. We provide assistance based on need alone.
