Highlights from our programmes in 2017-18 in the four outcome areas of CARE’s global programme strategy (humanitarian response, women’s economic empowerment, maternal and child health, and food and nutrition) include:
- continuing to address some of the most critical needs faced by people in Yemen, despite escalations in the conflict during the year
- assisting more than 842,000 people inside Syria with shelter, food, water, cash, and livelihoods support, and support on protection from gender-based violence
- building on our partnerships with the private sector to promote women’s economic empowerment, including through our innovative social enterprise Live Well in Zambia, and our global partnership with Diageo to support women’s empowerment and challenge gender-based violence throughout their value chain
- achieving significant increases in the number of women having regular ante-natal and post-natal check-ups, through our partnership with GSK in Afghanistan to improve infant and maternal mortality rates by strengthening local health systems
- supporting more than 220,000 people in Niger to cope with climate extremes and disasters through our UK government-funded BRACED (Building Resilience and Adaptation to Climate Extremes and Disaster) project
