For more than 50 years, CARE has been actively fighting against poverty in Haiti and defending the human dignity of disadvantaged families. At the same time, CARE Haiti has assisted those affected by the frequent natural disasters impacting Haiti through the years. CARE partners with families, communities and local governments to support sustainable development and improve the quality of life. CARE Haiti puts a particular focus on women because their empowerment serves as a catalyst for overall beneficial change in the communities where they reside.
