Detailed Description: CARE was formed in 1945 to send “CARE Packages” to survivors of WWII in Europe and Asia.
Some 100 million CARE Packages reached people in need during the following two decades. Today, CARE has expanded its mission to target poverty at its roots. In more than 60 developing countries, CARE helps poor communities create lasting solutions to their most threatening problems.
CARE’s integrated projects include emergency relief, community rehabilitation and longer-term projects in areas such as education, health and small-business development.
