Refugees

There are more than 65 million displaced people around the world.

More than half of them are children.
One person in 113 has been forced to flee their home, their country or is seeking asylum.*

Refugees have no choice but to leave behind families, homes and jobs and live a life they do not choose. CARE has been supporting refugees for over 70 years by providing food, water, shelter, psychosocial support, business training and more.

 

 

CARE is in neighbouring countries responding to the Syrian refugee crisis, and is on the ground in Chad and Kenya right now - helping refugees as they fight for survival. YOU can help.

Send a CARE Package that will help provide things like warm blankets, emergency food and more.

 

 

 

Seventy years ago, we delivered the first CARE Packages to the refugees of war-torn Europe. Today, with the help of Canadians, we deliver more than the contents of a single box.

When you honour someone special in your life with a CARE Package, you help a woman, man, or a family who has been forced to flee their home just to survive. There are more than 40 gifts to choose from such as emergency food and warm blankets.
