History of CARE Austria 

After World War II, large parts of Austria were in ruins, and many families faced starvation. Relief was urgently needed, especially in Vienna. From 1946-1955, CARE responded by distributing 1 million CARE Packages™ to assist with relief. The packages ranged from providing non-perishable food to including blankets and wool fabric.

In May 1986, CARE Austria was founded as the eighth member of CARE International.
