Who is CARE Luxembourg?

Founded in 1945 in the United States, CARE helped millions of people after the war in Europe with the famous CARE packages. Pâté, coffee, milk ... The packages were ambassadors for reconciliation and direct human-to-human assistance. This tradition continues today.
CARE is now present in 100 countries and is committed to fighting poverty and ensuring that people affected by disasters can survive in dignity. The most important thing for us is gender equality and the empowerment of women and girls, especially in regions where they are systematically disadvantaged.
Poverty is unjust. We cannot accept the fact that over 1.2 billion people around the world live in extreme poverty. This is why the CARE package today represents efficient, innovative and partnership-based aid which acts in a sustainable manner.
