Right now, one in seven people live in fragile or conflict-affected countries, and 68.5 million people are unable to live in their homes. That’s more than double the entire population of Canada, and on average it will be more than a decade before those who have had to flee can return home.

From natural disasters to climate-related shocks to conflict and displacement, most of these crises have the greatest impact on women and girls. They are often the last to eat in times of drought, often lack the physical strength to escape natural disasters and face sexual violence during conflicts. These hardships perpetuate poverty and inequality.

RUSHING AID WHEN IT'S NEEDED MOST

CARE works in more than 100 countries around the world to support 950 poverty-fighting development and emergency projects.
When an emergency hits, we deploy local emergency-response staff and partner with local groups to provide immediate assistance. This can range from providing emergency food and shelter to ensuring clean water and more.

BUILDING A BETTER FUTURE AFTER THE CRISIS

We work with survivors, especially women and children, to help them recover after a crisis. We work with women, girls and their families towards long-term recovery. Communities are then better able to withstand future emergencies for years to come.

Victoria was self-sufficient before Cyclone Idai hit Mozambique in March 2019

“The storm destroyed my house and drowned my chickens. The water reached my neck, so I climbed a tree. I stayed there for two days without food or water. My children are safe, but we’ve lost everything.”

Because of your generosity this past year, CARE was able to respond to emergencies around the world. Because of you, we delivered basic necessities like food and hygiene products to women impacted by natural disaster and in crisis zones. We ensured their families had a safe place to live. But women like Victoria will need more than food rations and soap to rebuild their lives. They need the chance to lift themselves out of poverty and crisis.

Give women like Victoria that chance by making a year-end donation to help CARE respond where the need is greatest.

Your tax-deductible donation gift will help women and girls in developing countries
lift themselves and their families out of poverty and out of crisis.

about care canada

We bring people together to end inequality

A History of Lasting Change

Our experience has shown that when we remove one barrier, other barriers are knocked down more easily. For example, when you pave the way for a young girl to go to school, she will ensure that her children go too. When you start something good today, your actions are felt for generations to come. CARE knows this because we’ve been working this way for more than 70 years.
