CARE’s work in Myanmar

CARE has been working in Myanmar since 1995. We work to improve living standards in rural communities by improving access to healthcare, food, livelihoods, water, sanitation and hygiene. All our programmes address gender inequality. We have a particular focus on health education, HIV prevention and nutritional support for children and pregnant women. We also tackle values and beliefs that prevent women from seeking health advice. We support farmers to grow crops and rear livestock, and help people access basic financial services. We provide emergency relief when this is needed, and are committed to providing continued post-emergency support.

CARE's impact

We work in 104 countries around the world, 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 75 years.

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.

Your support

Your support is what makes our poverty-fighting work possible. You can trust us to spend our funds wisely and effectively to help people in need.
