Features and Stories

CARE works with individuals and communities in over 84 countries around the world.

At the heart of CARE's work is our dedication to defending dignity and fighting poverty by empowering the world's greatest resource for change – women and girls.

Dima Lironie Bibishereen

Dima’s life has now changed drastically, thanks to the pump that CARE helped her community install in September 2012.

On January 10th, 2010 Lironie Herius was a seamstress in Haiti. One day later when the 7.0 magnitude earthquake hit her beloved country, her job disappeared.

Since 2011, Bibishereen has started a business selling the eggs of her chickens. With the money raised, she is sending her nine children to school and saving money to further invest.

Rafa Hindou Touré Sylvie

Eleven-year-old Rafa and her family fled from Homs, Syria when bullets were coming through the walls of their home. Now they get cash assistance from CARE to help pay for rent and food in the Jordanian capital of Amman.

Like thousands of people living in northern Mali, Hindou Touré’s extended family was forced to leave, pushed towards Niger by the violence of a then emerging conflict.

Sylvie Nyiransabimana’s group is one of more than 80 home-based groups formed in the area to help families care for children under age three, while freeing their time to work and increase their household income. 

Tchima Ibrahim Iro
Rina Begum Haoua

CARE is providing income to families like Tchima Ibrahim Iro’s so they can buy food ahead of what is commonly known as the lean season.

Rina Begum's soft smile belies the strength and inspiring leadership that has made her both a community and national leader in her home country of Bangladesh. 

Because of a credit loan from a CARE program’s village savings and loan association, Haoua has started a business selling condiments in her village.
