Who is CARE?

What we do

CARE tackles underlying causes of poverty so that people can become self-sufficient (read about our approach here). We place special focus on working alongside poor women because, equipped with the proper resources, women have the power to help entire families and communities escape poverty.

CARE is also one of the first to respond in emergencies such as natural disasters or civil conflict. Our projects directly assist survivors of natural disasters and conflict through immediate relief and longer-term community rehabilitation, which includes food, temporary shelter, clean water, sanitation services, medical care, family planning and reproductive health services, and seeds and tools.

In addition to emergencies, here is a list of CARE Japan's work as of November 2011:
