CARE is a leading humanitarian organization fighting global poverty. Founded in 1945, CARE began delivering vital disaster relief and humanitarian aid – much of it in the globally recognized form of CARE Packages. CARE has remained a leader in disaster response for more than 70 years while building expertise in international development programming to deliver lasting change worldwide. Last year, CARE worked in 95 countries, reaching more than 65 million people based on need alone. Today, CARE Canada focuses on food and nutrition, humanitarian relief, and maternal and child health, all with a special emphasis on women and girls.
