Country Info

CARE is one of the world's largest private international humanitarian organizations, committed to helping families in poor communities improve their lives and achieve lasting victories over poverty. The organization was founded in 1945, when 22 American organizations came together to rush lifesaving CARE Packages® to survivors of World War II. CARE quickly became a trusted vehicle for the compassion and generosity of millions. Originally located in New York City, we moved our headquarters to Atlanta, Georgia, in 1993. We are located at 151 Ellis Street, NE, Atlanta, Georgia 30303-2440 USA.
