Nelida Inga Aguilal, from Pacapaca, holds her one day old baby boy. The Center De Salud in Tambo, Peru is a success story for CARE. Ninety-four percent of the people in the community now use the clinic and since the introduction of the Femme Project, for maternal health, infant deaths have dropped dramatically.

Meliya Abdella had an arranged marriage at 14 and became a mother at 15. Now 19 years old and nine months pregnant she wants to start attending family planning meetings at a nearby CARE-supported health clinic. When people in Ethiopia like Meliya gain more control over family size and quality of life, then fewer lives will hang in the balance each time a drought occurs and food prices soar.

Hasina brews a cup of tea at her tea stall in Bangladesh. It was at this tea stall where she met CARE workers and was inspired to join a CARE group to support migratory sex workers. It was this group that helped Hasina leave prostitution and run a successful and profitable business.
Donate to CARE to help women like Hasina leave a life of violence and poverty behind. http://bit.ly/hg57W2

Jacqueline, pictured above, now personally meets the needs of her family thanks to selling local beer and her harvest.
"My husband is now sharing that the family is more prosperous because of me," she said. "Lately, he has decided to double the amount of money he sends because he told me that I am a very good manager...And now, he is consulting me, I am no longer a child in my own house."
Donate now to help other women around the world become empowered and independent, as Jacqueline and the members of her solidarity group have done. http://bit.ly/ihWJ6C

Students are pictured at a school in Afghanistan where, like at Malay's school, CARE also established a school library.
"Every literate villager is really interested to use the books," Malay said of her school library. "Now I can see many changes at my village level and it seems that the culture of studying has been promoted in our village."
Donate now to help CARE bring education & poverty-fighting resources to villages like Malay's, and your gift will be doubled until Dec. 31! http://bit.ly/fyBbNR

In this photo, Maria washes clothes to earn an income to feed her children and provide them shelter after her husband disappeared and left them with nothing.
She found hope when she joined a CARE group. "I participated in all meetings of the group and transferred what I learned about women's and children's rights and family law to other women as we washed people's clothes," she said. "I learned that a woman is not helpless; a woman is the key to her own development when she is aware and supported."
Donate now to help women like Maria access the resources to become financially independent and lead their families out of poverty http://bit.ly/glLLIY
