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 plays a crucial role in four camps in northern Iraq by organising the supply of clean water for Internally Displaced People (IDP) and their host communities. CARE has also improved access to sanitation facilities in camps and for host communities, as well as providing emergency kits to new arrivals in camps. Women, girls and boys receive solar lamps to ensure protection and safety at night. To date, CARE’s work in these camps has reached more than 45,000 people.
