Throughout the developing world girls and women are expected to spend hours every single day fetching water. It's time that could be better spent in school, working, or just being with family and friends. CARE helps bring clean, accessible water to poor communities by constructing boreholes and other water systems that reduce water-related disease, irrigate crops and help people reclaim the time previously spent carrying water.
The gifts in this catalog are virtual gifts representative of what CARE does to support the fight against poverty.
