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.
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.
CARE’s work in Egypt began in 1954 with the introduction of a nationwide school meals program. Since then, CARE has become actively involved in development programming particularly in Upper Egypt, where more than 50 percent of the nation’s poor live.
Today, CARE Egypt works to promote and support quality education and girls’ leadership, more effective and equitable natural resource management to enhance rural livelihoods, effective governance and civic engagement, and equitable social protection for vulnerable groups – especially women.
CARE works with beneficiaries, civil society organizations, government, aid agencies, networks, community-based associations and the increasingly socially aware Egyptian private sector.
In addition, CARE is working in Egypt to help refugees fleeing violence in Syria.
