COUNTRIES IN CRISIS
We respond to dozens of disasters each year, reaching approximately 12 million people through our emergency programs. View the map to see where we're providing relief right now.
SYRIAN REFUGEE CRISIS
The ongoing armed conflict in Syria has left up to 13.5 million people, half of whom are children, in need of humanitarian aid. We’re on the ground in the region helping Syrians as they struggle to survive.
SOUTH SUDAN VIOLENCE
A recent escalation in violence underlines the fragile situation in the world’s youngest nation, still recovering from almost 50 years of civil war. Almost 5 million people in South Sudan need immediate assistance and 3.7 million are at risk for hunger.
Conflict IN YEMEN
Ongoing violence in Yemen has resulted in 80% of the population in need of humanitarian assistance. Over 21 million people struggle to access food, water and medical care.
In a year of unprecedented humanitarian need, El Niño is putting tens of millions of people at risk of drought and floods.
HAITI EARTHQUAKE RECOVERY
The 2010 earthquake in Haiti killed 220,000 people and left 2.3 million homeless. Five years later, we remain as committed as ever to helping Haitians rebuild their lives and communities.
WEST BANK & GAZA CRISIS
CARE has operated in the West Bank and Gaza since 1948. Today, we provide access to services such as healthcare, water and sanitation, as well as agriculture and livelihoods programs.
CHAD: REFUGEES ON THE RISE
Hunger and poverty are on the rise as Chad takes on refugees from all over the Sahel region, in particular the Central African Republic, even as the country struggles to solve its own food crisis with limited resources.
MALI: ON THE BRINK
In Mali, where poor recent harvests, lasting impacts of the 2012 Sahel food crisis and conflict have made a severe toll on the population, more than 800,000 people need immediate food assistance and another 3 million people are at risk of not finding enough to eat.
DADAAB REFUGEE CAMPS
We’ve worked in Dadaab, Kenya, since drought drove refugees there in 1991. We’re the primary provider of basic services like food, water and sanitation, as well as education and healthcare, for more than 423,496 people.
DRC: WOMEN AT RISK
Conflict is a part of daily life in the Democratic Republic of the Congo, and women are especially at risk. We provide food and water, as well as support for victims of sexual and gender-based violence.
From Relief to Long-Term Recovery
We respond to dozens of disasters each year, reaching approximately 12 million people through our emergency programs.
Our decades of experience, expansive global reach and robust network of partners enable us to take a comprehensive approach to emergency relief.
First, we work with communities to prepare for and mitigate the impact of disasters.
Then, we partner with local groups to provide immediate assistance when an emergency hits.
And finally, we work with survivors, especially women and children, to help them recover after the crisis has passed.
Looking ahead, our goal is to create a flexible humanitarian surge fund to enable CARE to respond rapidly and effectively to up to four simultaneous large-scale emergencies, while addressing protracted emergencies. Donate today to help us reach our goal.
