CARE has been providing emergency relief and development assistance in the Philippines since 1949. Over the years, the organization has developed strong working relations with local communities and local non-government organizations throughout the country.
CARE Philippines responds to major and minor emergencies within the country which includes typhoons, earthquakes, volcanic eruptions, and displacements. For our responses, CARE works closely with our partners on the ground to develop a comprehensive risk assessment to know the specific needs of the affected population.
In the Philippines, CARE incorporates gender- and gender-based violence programming in its humanitarian response and development work; pilots exploratory action research in a range of topics such as feminist open government, women economic empowerment, female genital mutilation, gender-sensitive cash voucher assistance, and women leadership in emergencies; and participates actively in national clusters and inter-agency task forces in Gender Based Violence.
CARE works and partners with local civil society and women’s rights organizations to ensure that women from the most marginalized and vulnerable communities are genuinely consulted, are empowered to speak, and are heard.
HEALTH AND WASH
CARE provides women and girls of reproductive age with comprehensive quality sexual and reproductive health and rights (SRHR) services, addresses non-communicable diseases (NCDs) in internally displaced communities and strengthens public health sector capacities in SRHR health care and NCD management including in emergencies.
INTEGRATED RISK MANAGEMENT
In the Philippines, CARE empowers vulnerable communities & local advocates to strengthen their resilience to various disasters. Thus, CARE is integrating disaster risk reduction, climate change adaptation & ecosystems restoration and management across all our programs.
CARE’s resilience approach works not only in response to shocks and stresses but it is a permanent element of our programmatic thinking. It also goes hand in hand with integrating gender equality and inclusive governance as core elements of the pathway out of poverty and to a life with dignity.
RESEARCH AND KNOWLEDGE
CARE opens spaces for new and existing knowledge to be shared within and across different relevant development and humanitarian actors. CARE Philippines participates in local and international research within CARE and with other agencies.
CARE leverages learning and innovation from extensive research, particularly on resilience, gender and humanitarian action. CARE Philippines’ knowledge management arm, The Resilience and Innovation Learning Hub Philippines or RILHUB, is a platform for learning and reflection and source of knowledge in disaster risk reduction (DRR), climate change adaptation (CCA), ecosystem management and restoration (EMR), and innovations.
