Whether it is a sudden emergency or an ongoing crisis, The UPS Foundation has been by CARE’s side since 1995, aiding people in need around the world. In the wake of COVID-19, UPS worked with CARE to not only respond to the COVID-19 surge in India but toward long-term solutions to the pandemic through equitable worldwide vaccine assistance for 100 million vulnerable people, and 275,000 healthcare workers, through CARE’s Fast + Fair initiative. UPS has used its partnerships, resources, and logistics expertise to ensure CARE’s humanitarian work reaches the most people, efficiently. With UPS’s support, CARE has been better able to respond to emergencies around the globe, and through CARE’s Humanitarian Surge Fund, which enables CARE to respond quickly when emergencies strike anywhere. UPS’s support has also allowed CARE to prepare for emergencies through a supply chain management program that revolutionized the way CARE tracks and delivers critical supplies for COVID-19 and other emergencies. These warehouse management tracking systems have been implemented in eight countries in West Africa and continue to scale, delivering life-saving aid to millions.
