CARE has been working in the Balkans since 1993. We started by providing humanitarian aid to those displaced and affected by the wars. Today, CARE seeks to help build sustainable peace and development in the region. Our programmes support economic acvies on a regional level, strengthen peace and reconciliaon efforts, seek to integrate minories and foster opportunies for young people. Since the 2000s, CARE focuses its efforts on the polical and socio-economic inclusion of marginalized groups and gender equality. We also provide emergency assistance to refugees stranded in the Balkans. CARE today works in Bosnia and Herzegovina, Croatia, Serbia, Kosovo , Montenegro, North Macedonia and Albania.
