CARE is there to help people when they need it most
We are one of the world’s leading humanitarian agencies, delivering life-saving assistance wherever and whenever disaster strikes.
How we work in emergencies
We respond quickly when emergencies arise, make sure help gets to those who need it most, and support people to recover and rebuild afterwards.
Thousands have died, many more are injured, and hundreds of thousands of Nepal’s people are destitute and in need of urgent help.
We’ve already helped more than 750,000 people – but millions more are in urgent need of help as this huge crisis enters its fifth year.
Driven out by conflict and hunger, over a million people have fled their homes - and millions more live in fear of being unable to feed and protect themselves and their families.
Cyclone in Vanuatu
Cyclone Pam was the strongest storm to hit the Pacific islands of Vanuatu in recorded history - over 150,000 people need urgent help to recover from the devastation.
Every year, CARE responds to over 30 emergencies around the world. Find out more about where we’re helping people right now.
