The virus is deadly. This is especially true in places where there are hardly any medical facilities. Therefore, CARE is providing training for health workers and strengthening hygiene measures. CARE distributes medicines, disinfectants, and medical protective equipment as well as drinking water and food.
CARE helps the most vulnerable people - especially women, girls, and refugees. CARE has established Corona emergency response plans in 69 out of 100 countries of operation. Relief efforts are well underway in many countries.
In order to sustainably improve the lives and futures of these children and young people, CARE Germany founded the initiative "Sport for Social Change" together with local partners back in 2010. Within the last few years, CARE Germany and local partners have built up a football league which, coupled with educational programs, offers children and young people an alternative to the streets and the rubbish dump.
In addition to the sporting activities, remedial, computer and art courses are offered, among other things. The league's training and games take place outside of school hours, keeping the children meaningfully occupied in their free time.
