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.

CARE's impact

We work in 79 developing countries, 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 70 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.
