You've likely heard the term "care package" before, but did you know that it originated with CARE? Seventy-five years ago the first (and original) CARE Packages® were sent to Le Havre, France to provide essentials to those who had lost so much during the Second World War. From once providing to today empowering, CARE has come a long way in seventy-five years.
Marking this special anniversary with us today is CARE International's Secretary General, Sofia Sprechmann Sineiro. Sofia has worked with CARE for 27 years in various roles, and remains dedicated to transforming power relations inside and outside of the organization. Her unshakable commitment to women and girls is drawn from many years of working alongside some of the world's most marginalized communities.
