Speak up. They’re listening.

The Trump Administration’s ban on refugees threatens lives and puts thousands in limbo. Speak up for refugees. They’re listening.

Today's CARE Package

CARE Packages containing food and supplies helped European refugees survive after World War II. Today’s CARE Package provides debit cards that Syrian refugees use to buy blankets, food and other essentials.

Special Delivery

Once child refugees themselves, recipients of the world’s first CARE Packages pay it forward 70 years later, sending compassion — and so much more — to Syrian refugee children.
