CARE's work in Cameroon

CARE has worked in Cameroon since 1978. We work in partnership with the government, development organisations and local communities on programmes to improve incomes, protect the environment, improve access to water, provide food security, and strengthen primary healthcare. HIV is a major cause of extreme poverty here: many families are left destitute when family members fall ill or die. We work on HIV prevention and help communities care for children affected by HIV and AIDS. We also provide humanitarian and psychosocial support to refugees from the Central African Republic and work with communities around the refugee camps to reduce tensions between both groups.

CARE's impact

We work in 104 countries around the world, saving lives in emergencies and finding long-term solutions to poverty for millions of people every year.

About CARE

Founded in 1945 to send 'CARE packages' to people recovering from war, we have been fighting poverty in the world’s poorest countries for 75 years.

Our aims

We empower women and girls to fulfil their potential – because when one woman is helped out of poverty, she brings her family and community with her.

Your support

Your support is what makes our poverty-fighting work possible. You can trust us to spend our funds wisely and effectively to help people in need.
