CARE first intervened in Pakistan after the disastrous earthquake of 2005 that took hundreds of lives and destroyed entire villages. We believe a little emergency preparedness can save a lot of lives. That is why Disaster Risk Reduction is considered an integral part of our development work, as is addressing humanitarian rights, and strengthening humanitarian governance and accountability of relevant institutions.
Since 2005, CARE has provided $55 million for emergency relief and recovery support to over 1.5 million people in four provinces-Khyber
Pakthtunkhwa, Balochistan, Punjab and Sindh. The main strategic thematic areas of interventions are Disaster Risk Reduction &
Management, Emergency Response, Health, and Livelihoods through cash based programing, WASH, Nutrition and Shelter etc.
CARE's strategic impact group is vulnerable and marginalized women.
