Inequality is increasing. The world’s richest people are richer than ever. Many countries are, overall, becoming wealthier. But not all poor people are benefiting from economic growth. There has been a dramatic increase in the number and scale of humanitarian emergencies. The number of refugees and displaced people is higher than it has been in CARE’s 70-year history, caused by conflict, poverty, climate change and natural disasters.
We are pleased that in 2016-17, CARE has been able to respond wherever people are in greatest need, by securing additional funding and demonstrating our effectiveness.
Highlights from our work in the four outcome areas of CARE’s global programme strategy (humanitarian response, women’s economic empowerment, maternal and child health, food and nutrition) include:
- assisting 75,000 people in Haiti after Hurricane Matthew - almost 30% of the disaster-affected population
- responding to the Syria crisis, which is now into its seventh year, including supporting people inside Syria with household essentials and livelihoods support
- providing water, food, health, nutrition and livelihoods support to people in seven governorates of Yemen
- enabling more girls to stay in school and achieve better results through our UKaid-funded Somali Girls’ Education Promotion project
- providing financial education and enterprise development training to 16,000 women in Rwanda
- reducing child mortality in Bangladesh through our partnership with GlaxoSmithKline (GSK)
- helping 400,000 of the most vulnerable people in southern Zimbabwe to cope with drought and hunger, through our cash assistance programme funded by UKaid

This year, we secured 20% more funding than the previous year (total income £93 million, up from £78 million in 2015-16). This enabled us to significantly increase our support for CARE’s responses to humanitarian emergencies, and invest in a range of long-term, large-scale development programmes that are bringing lasting change to the lives of poor and marginalised people. Our total expenditure in 2016-17 was £94 million. Full details are given in our financial statements which are included in our Annual Report and Accounts 2016-17.
