West Bank and Gaza
CARE’s work in West Bank and Gaza
CARE has been working in the West Bank and Gaza since 1948. Today, we continue to meet humanitarian needs – most recently during the conflict in 2014 – while also working with Palestinian communities to improve healthcare provision, water and sanitation, and to promote sustainable agriculture and livelihoods. We work closely with local government and community-based organisations to strengthen democracy and civil society. We particularly focus on meeting the needs of poor, vulnerable, marginalised and isolated people. We work with local organisations to increase the participation of women and marginalised groups in decision-making at all levels.
