History of CARE International's work in Croatia

CARE International has been working in the Balkans since 1993, initially providing humanitarian aid for refugees and victims of war. Today, we work in Bosnia and Herzegovina, Croatia, Serbia, Kosovo, Montenegro, North Macedonia, and Albania and seek to help build sustainable peace and development in the region. 

Currently, CARE International's work in Croatia is mainly through national partners with similar goals of achieving victories over widespread poverty.

What CARE International does in the Balkans

Our programs support economic activities on regional levels, peace and reconciliation efforts, integration of minorities, and the creation of opportunities for young people.
We place special focus on working with vulnerable groups, including women and girls, Roma communities, and poor farmers to promote social and economic rights for all.

Since 2020, CARE International has been responding to COVID-19 in the Balkans. Response efforts have included mobilizing national civil society organizations to inform communities in methods to prevent the spread of COVID-19, as well as providing equipment and support to healthcare institutions serving marginalized populations.
