Haiti

For more than 50 years, CARE has been actively fighting against poverty in Haiti and defending the human dignity of disadvantaged families. At the same time, we have assisted those affected by the frequent natural disasters that have visited Haiti through the years. CARE partners with families, communities and local governments to support sustainable development and improve the quality of life.

When the 7.0-magnitude earthquake hit Haiti on January 12, 2010, the poor island country was ill-prepared to sustain the consequences of such a devastating event. CARE was there - and today, we are in the fourth year of a five-year, $100 million plan to help Haitians rebuild their lives and communities. We focus on women because their empowerment serves as a catalyst for overall beneficial change in the communities where they reside.
