Care International In Lebanon - About
Care International In Lebanon
Cooperative for Assistance and Relief Everywhere “CARE” is a leading relief and development non-governmental organization fighting global poverty. With more than 65 years of experience and long-term presence in many of the world’s poorest and most vulnerable countries. CARE is supporting 1,051 poverty-fighting projects to reach more than 122 million people in 84 countries.
CARE helps tackle underlying causes of poverty so that people can become self-sufficient. CARE is often one of the first to deliver emergency aid to survivors of natural disasters and war and, once the immediate crisis is over, we help people rebuild their lives. While CARE is a large international organization with more than 11,000 employees worldwide, we have a strong local presence: 97% of our staff are nationals of the countries where our programmers are run.
CARE International first established a mission in Lebanon in 2006 and in April 2013 further enhanced its presence in Lebanon in order to address needs of the refugee population and host communities due to the current situation. Currently, CARE International in Lebanon operates from two offices located in Beirut and Tripoly with programs being implemented also in the South of the country. All our projects focus on ensuring women and girls have a voice in their own development and the basic services they need to receive. Our portfolio of programs encompass strengthening economic opportunities, WASH, shelter and protection working with and through local partners.
