You can help by supporting CARE's work in Yemen and other poor countries around the world.
CARE has been continuously active in Yemen since 1993, in projects that work towards reducing poverty. These have evolved from basic relief efforts and reconstruction after the civil war in 1994, to long-term projects.
CARE’s work in Yemen has a common focus on community self-help and women’s empowerment, including women’s literacy, water management, capacity building of local organizations, natural resource management, emergency response and relief assistance to refugees.
In addition, CARE is working in Yemen to help refugees fleeing violence in Syria.

Yemen is one of the poorest countries in the world, and the poorest in the Middle East. Currently, the people of Yemen are suffering from a severe hunger crisis, which has been intensified by conflict and instability.
As we celebrate International Day of the Girl, we can’t help remind ourselves of our own childhood.
We believe that the greatest obstacle to girls’ education is the low social status in which girls are held.
