CARE International’s mandate is to work with disaster affected communities in Vietnam to both reduce long-term vulnerability to disaster and to assist in times of crisis in a manner which promotes sustainable improvements in livelihoods and security.
The goal of CARE International in Vietnam’s humanitarian and emergency response is to meet the immediate needs of the target groups — particularly women and girls, remote ethnic minority people, and socially marginalised people — and the most vulnerable groups affected by natural disasters, and to support communities to recover from the impacts of the disaster, over the medium- and long- term.
CARE International in Vietnam works closely with government partners and local non-governmental agencies, as well as other International NGOs and UN agencies in its responses to emergencies in Vietnam. Currently, CARE in Vietnam prioritises the sectors of intervention including:
IN THE IMMEDIATE RESPONSE PHASE:
AND IN THE RECOVERY PHASE:
In humanitarian and emergency response programming, CARE applies CASH transfer as one of the modality either as emergency relief intended or to buy essential assets for the recovery of their livelihoods.
