Out Of War, Came Hope

75 Years of CARE

In the shadow of WWII a small group of Americans came together to help millions of Europeans with the simple, but powerful plan: the CARE Package®. This innovative idea sparked an American movement that would deliver more than 100 million CARE Packages containing food and medicine to war survivors and families around the world, along with the tools and supplies needed to rebuild their lives.

CARE Packages Then and Now

At the end of World War II, CARE introduced the first CARE Package® for the post-war hungry, ultimately delivering 100 million of them to families around the world.

For 75 years, CARE has been helping those in need around the world. In response to COVID-19, for the first time ever, CARE called on all Americans to help deliver new CARE Packages – financial support and messages of hope – to frontline medical workers, caregivers, essential workers and individuals in need around the world.
