CARE was set up on 27 November 1945 to send CARE packages to people in Europe after World War 2 – and we're still sending real help to people in need today.

The Telegraph Christmas Appeal

The Telegraph has chosen CARE for its Christmas Charity Appeal because the emergency assistance we provide today is as vitally needed as it was 70 years ago.

About CARE

Founded in 1945 to send 'CARE packages' to people recovering from war, we have been fighting poverty in the world’s poorest countries for 70 years.

CARE's reach

We work in 75 developing countries, saving lives in emergencies and finding long-term solutions to poverty for millions of people every year.

Our mission

We empower women and girls to fulfil their potential – because when one woman is helped out of poverty, she brings her family and community with her.

Your donations

For every £1 raised, we spend at least 83p on fighting poverty. You can trust us to spend your money wisely and effectively to help people in need.
