Challenge

CARE reaches more than 20 million people a year with humanitarian aid, but it's not enough. Over the past few years, we have reimagined the way we respond. We are disrupting the traditional aid infrastructure, which can be slow and inflexible, with innovative responses that build local capacity, address gender inequality and help people prepare for the inevitable next disaster.

Solution

The Humanitarian Surge Fund is the key, as it allows us to respond immediately and make a significant impact before major fundraising has even begun. This reserve fund can be deployed in the first days of an emergency, often before any other help is available. Reacting quickly saves lives.

Long-Term Impact

When you support the Surge Fund, you make it possible for CARE to be among the first on the ground after a natural disaster and ensure that the needs of women and girls are at the center of any humanitarian response. You also allow us to work with local communities and governments in disaster-prone areas to prepare for and mitigate risks. And you help fund crucial research and innovation that has put CARE at the forefront of reinventing emergency response.
