Here’s some food for thought for World Food Day this Friday 16 October: 795 million people around the world do not have enough to eat. That’s why CARE is working with communities like Judith’s in Timor Leste to help bring this number down to zero.
When CARE Australia’s Lydia Hanna met Leonora in Timor-Leste, it was easy to see why CARE partners with women to improve the lives of whole communities.
When CARE first began a Safe Motherhood Project in the remote village of Atsabe in Timor-Leste, 43-year-old Maria was one of the first to put her hand up.
CARE is producing educational magazines and radio broadcasts to help communities with literacy, numeracy and life skills.
CARE-trained community volunteers are helping to prevent malnutrition, providing vital maternal and child health services in Timor-Leste.
Happy Mother’s Day to all the mothers around the world! This Mother’s Day, we celebrate the millions of amazing mothers CARE is supporting, who are helping their families and communities overcome poverty. Support CARE’s work with women and girls around the world.
