Ranked by our experts as the #4 nonprofit for international emergency response, CARE is an internationally recognized nonprofit in which emergency relief is a vital part of their work to create lasting solutions to poverty. Learn about CARE’s emergency relief program:
Many poor communities in the developing world lack the basic resources to cope with the struggles of everyday life. When disaster strikes, that struggle becomes all but impossible without assistance. CARE’s mission has expanded greatly since our founding as a relief organization in the wake of World War II. But we remain a world leader in providing lifesaving assistance, as well as the tools for long-term rehabilitation, to survivors of natural disasters, armed conflict and other emergencies. Our Emergency and Humanitarian Assistance Unit (EHAU) helps communities create plans to deal with emergencies and works to ensure they receive food, water, shelter, healthcare and other emergency relief supplies when they need them most. In addition, CARE helps communities recover and rebuild after disaster strikes. In 2010, CARE’s emergency response and recovery programs reached more than 4.5 million people in 37 countries.
