More than 60 years ago, twenty-two American charities, a mixture of civic, religious, cooperative and labor organizations got together to found CARE. Originally known as the Cooperative for American Remittances to Europe, the organization began to deliver millions of CARE packages across Europe.
During the next three decades, CARE shifted its focus to delivering assistance in the developing world, and started programs in the areas of education, natural resources management, nutrition, water and sanitation, and healthcare in Southern Africa, South Asia and South America. Broadening the geographic focus and expanding beyond the original food distribution programs, CARE started to assist people affected by major emergencies – from famine in Ethiopia to earthquake recovery in Haiti.
