Thanks to our supporters, CARE Australia assisted 2.8 million people across 23 countries last financial year. You can read the latest about our work in the 2015/16 Annual report.
Of course, we also faced extreme challenges this year, with conflict and natural disasters affecting millions of people around the world. After five long years, the Syrian Crisis continued to worsen, forcing millions to flee their homes in search of safety. A powerful El Nino weather pattern also devastated crops and surged market prices in Papua New Guinea, Vanuatu and around the world.
Thank you to all of our supporters for helping us rise to these challenges and continue to help millions of people in need. None of our work would be possible without our supporters, and we sincerely thank you for your generosity.
Many thanks, the CARE Australia Team
