In the last several weeks CARE’s response has focused on the rural countryside of Aleppo governorate, targeting displaced Syrians from Aleppo city and elsewhere, as well as host communities. So far, CARE and its partners have helped 17,000 displaced Syrians with assistance to prepare for the winter, food baskets, and hygiene kits. We will continue supporting the communities in need - notably the evacuees - and are currently organizing distributions for the coming days of 1,700 emergency kits.

Some international aid agencies in South Sudan have warned that the risk of famine and genocide in the coming months is dire.
CARE is working with partners in Syria to welcome displaced persons and #Aleppo evacuees in safe centers. Evacuees are being provided with medical treatment, food, water, hygiene kits, blankets and psycho-social support (which includes balloons for the kids).
CARE is a leading humanitarian organization fighting global poverty. We place special focus on working alongside girls and women because, equipped with the proper resources, they have the power to help whole families and entire communities escape poverty. Last year CARE helped 97 million people in 87 countries.
