The funds you raise will improve the lives of the world's poorest communities. For example, CARE is providing aid in West Africa, where heavy rains in Niger, Benin and Chad have resulted in severe flooding, making thousands of people homeless and destroying their crops. CARE has been able to distribute emergency aid, including food and basic shelter, and has also been repairing boreholes damaged in the flood, to re-instate a clean source of water for dozens of families.
CARE also works with communities on a long-term basis to ensure they are better equipped to deal with disasters in the first instance, for example by helping to build proper water and sanitation facilities. CARE is also one of the most efficient aid and development agencies, with 94 pence in every pound raised going directly to our relief work. That’s one of the highest rates of all agencies, so you can be assured your money is making a huge difference.
