CARE is one of the world's leading humanitarian organizations fighting global poverty. Founded in 1945 to provide relief to survivors of World War II, CARE quickly became a trusted vehicle for the compassion and generosity of millions. Our reach and mission have greatly evolved and expanded since. Today, CARE helps poor families and communities in some 70 countries create lasting solutions to their most threatening problems. CARE's integrated projects include emergency relief, community rehabilitation and longer-term projects in areas such as education, health and small-business development. Each year, CARE helps tens of millions of people around the world affect real, positive changes in their lives.

Doctors Without Borders, USA awards grants for emergency and medical relief projects to Médecins Sans Frontières (MSF) affiliates for overseas operations. MSF is an international independent medical humanitarian organization that delivers emergency aid to people affected by armed conflict, epidemics, natural or man-made disasters, or exclusion from health care in more than 70 countries. MSF was founded in 1971 to both provide emergency medical assistance and bear witness publicly to the plight of the people it assists. In emergencies and their aftermath, MSF provides health care, rehabilitates and runs hospitals and clinics, performs surgery, battles epidemics, carries out vaccination campaigns, operates feeding centers for malnourished children, and offers mental health care.
