CARE's reach

We work in 74 developing countries, saving lives in emergencies and finding long-term solutions to poverty for millions of people every year.

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.

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.
