Six-year-old Rami's leg was almost amputated after a bomb fell on the family's roof in Syria. His mother was also injured. Thankfully, Rami's leg was saved and he can walk again, but his mother still can't. The family has since fled to Jordan, where they are in need of emergency aid. Please donate now to help families like Rami's:

Today, CARE CEO Helene Gayle visited Rawda and her children, who are Syrian refugees living in Jordan. Rawda teared up as she told Dr. Gayle about losing her husband during a bomb blast in Syria, and struggling as a widowed mother of 5.

But, there is good news! Although Rawda was initially told all of the schools in Jordan were full, following a CARE visit that brought the family's situation to the attention of the community, the children are now enrolled! Dr. Gayle was so thrilled that she brought the children gifts, which mostly consisted of school supplies for the new school year.

Syrian refugees Nada and Houria live with their 6 children in a poor neighborhood in Beirut. The two families sleep on mattresses on the floor and have access to drinking water once a day (they keep it in the bathtub).

The electric installation is old and hacked into by all the new tenants: regular fires, smoke and smell lead to everyone panicking in the overpopulated building.

In Madagascar, many of the girls drew pictures of schools. Because CARE now offers meals in school, many girls are able to attend who otherwise would be too hungry to come to class.

In honor of the 2013 #DayoftheGirl in October, our staff are gathering paintings from girls who, thanks to CARE, are getting an education. Follow #CAREart to share their journeys, and see how the girls chose to portray the impact CARE has had on their lives in their art.
