CARE’s work in Vanuatu

Consisting of 83 islands, Vanuatu is highly vulnerable to natural disasters including earthquakes and tropical storms. We started working here in 2008, with a focus on helping communities prepare for emergencies – such as Cyclone Pam in 2015.

Communities in Vanuatu have limited capacity to rebuild when disasters strike. So we help them develop sustainable emergency preparedness plans, and gain the skills and knowledge they need to prevent, prepare for and respond to disasters – and to rebuild afterwards. We also work with local organisations, other NGOs and government bodies to ensure they can give communities the support they need. 

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.
