Today's CARE Package
CARE Packages containing food and supplies helped European refugees survive after World War II. Today’s CARE Package provides debit cards that Syrian refugees use to buy blankets, food and other essentials.
Once child refugees themselves, recipients of the world’s first CARE Packages pay it forward 70 years later, sending compassion — and so much more — to Syrian refugee children.
In Lebanon, CARE has set up operations in 2013 to support the growing needs of Syrian refugees. Over the next two years, our emergency response includes:
- Supporting refugees to seek assistance so that they are able to address their immediate needs;
- Providing access to shelter for newly arrived refugees and crisis-displaced families;
- Assisting refugees and host communities with livelihood opportunities and vocational training that will help them earn a living;
- Supporting refugees and host communities with access to water and sanitation;
- Ensuring support for host communities that have been overwhelmed by the crisis; and
- Providing psychosocial support, protecting the rights of vulnerable women and helping prevent gender-based violence.
