Country Info

CARE has a long history in the Philippines that stretches back to 1949. For decades, we've been providing emergency relief when disaster strikes and helping communities prepare for disasters. We were there in 2009 when typhoon Ketsana hit and again in 2012 when typhoon Bopha ripped through the country.

CARE is currently on the ground providing food, shelter and other essentials to survivors of Typhoon Haiyan, which has torn a path across central Philippines, affecting an estimated 9.8 million people and killing as many as 10,000.
