CARE’s work in Thailand

CARE’s work in Thailand began in 1979, to respond to the influx of Cambodian refugees along Thailand’s borders. The Raks Thai Foundation (the local name of CARE in Thailand) became a full member of CARE International in 2003 – the first developing country to do so.

Today, we support to families affected by HIV, fight discrimination and promote reproductive health rights. We help poor rural communities find alternative ways to earn a living and promote education reform. We help communities prepare for and respond to emergencies and support rehabilitation in the wake of disasters.

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.
