CARE works in 74 poor and developing countries
We work in the world’s poorest people in the world’s least developed countries; in fragile states, where the government and institutions are unable to provide for the basic needs, or protect the rights, of the majority of the people; and in countries affected by conflict, crises or disasters.
We also work with the poorest communities in so-called ‘middle income countries’ - countries which are experiencing economic growth, but where deep inequality means that many people are left behind, and remain trapped in extreme poverty.
- Asia and Pacific
- Latin America
- Middle East & Eastern Europe
We work in 74 developing countries, saving lives in emergencies and finding long-term solutions to poverty for millions of people every year.
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.
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.
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.
