Share your story
Do you have a story to share?
Did you, or someone you know, receive a CARE package in the years after World War 2? We’re looking for the original recipients of CARE packages so we can keep your memories and stories alive. However little or much you’d like to share we’d love to hear your story. Please...

We’re very happy for you to just share a few memories or your full story – as much or as little as you want to share. And if you have any photos or other memorabilia to go with your story, please let us know. We’ve created an online home for memories about the original CARE packages (and we feature longer stories on our website too). We think it’s important that the stories aren’t forgotten and that future generations can share them.
