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.
