What does CARE do? We save lives, defeat poverty, achieve social justice, and fight for women and girls.
CARE Egypt Foundation (CEF) is an Egyptian, non-governmental organization harnessing the legacy of CARE International in Egypt since 1954 to fight poverty and improve livelihoods.
CARE’s work in Egypt began in 1954 with the introduction of a nationwide school meals program. Since then, CARE has become actively involved in development programming particularly in Upper Egypt.
In 1945, as the world began to heal from the devastation of World War II, an inspired group of Americans sought to alleviate suffering. Seven decades on, their simple idea has evolved from a surplus package of U.S. Army rations to a global mission to uplift women and girls and ultimately eradicate poverty in every corner of the earth.
