History of CARE International's work in Czech Republic

After World War II, many people in the former Czechoslovakia had little access to food. From July 1946 to June 1950, CARE Packages™ worth over 32.8 million crowns ($1.6 million) were distributed in Czechoslovakia. 

In January 1993, Czechoslovakia split into the Czech Republic and Slovakia. CARE International returned to the Czech Republic in November 2007.
