In 2022, CARE worked in 111 countries, reaching 174 million people through more than 1,600 programs. Thanks to our supporters, CARE was able to respond to some of the greatest humanitarian challenges since our founding. We've assisted Ukrainian refugees fleeing into Poland and other neighboring countries. The war in Ukraine, combined with climate shifts and economic fallout caused by COVID, exacerbated the global hunger crisis. In response, we launched a $250 million comprehensive emergency response that delivered critical food aid and treatment for severe malnutrition while helping families build longer-term plans to withstand future shocks.
Water and food are essential to human life and dignity while healthy ecosystems protect and conserve natural resources that provide and sustain life. CARE commits to work with partners around the world to support 75 million people, most of them women and girls, to fulfill their right to food, water and nutrition as part of Vision 2030. This year, CARE will be highlighting a key and dynamic group in improving access to healthy food and water systems: youth. Through the She Feeds the World framework, CARE promotes a focus on young women and men as positive change agents who bring creativity, energy, commitment, and novel perspectives to understanding and addressing food, economic and social insecurity in their communities. CARE pursues Positive Youth Development strategies, viewing young people as key partners in all development efforts, from nutritional programming to strengthening agricultural markets.
