Emergency Relief

In an emergency, timing is crucial. CARE has the resources and over 70 years of 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.
