Djibouti

CARE's work in Djibouti

CARE worked for a short time in Djibouti from 2012 as part of our response to the food crisis in the Horn of Africa. 

Djibouti had received insufficient rainfall since 2005, which had depleted water reserves, deteriorated the health of livestock and milk production, and caused massive loss of livestock and livelihoods. The influx of refugees placed a further strain on Djibouti's resources. CARE's work in Djibouti focused on health and nutrition services, including a health centre serving mostly Somali refugees in the Ali-Addeh camp, as well as the surrounding host population.

We work in 79 developing countries, saving lives in emergencies and finding long-term solutions to poverty for millions of people every year.

Our aims

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.
