This report, the result of internal research by CARE International, argues that partnerships in humanitarian response not only meet lifesaving needs but can also address gender inequalities. Based on the review of five recent emergency responses, the report explores which partnership models and practices can best foster gendertransformative humanitarian action.

Remembering the Tsunami: A Decade of Strengthening Humanitarian Response
Ten years ago, the global community faced what was one of the biggest tests of humanitarianism in recent history.
On Dec. 26, 2004, an earthquake rumbled off the coast of Indonesia, triggering a series of devastating tsunamis that struck 14 countries across the Indian Ocean. At least 228,000 people lost their lives and millions more were left homeless.
New Asia Impact Report provides greater donor accountability
CARE today launched the Asia Impact Report which provides a review of the impact of CARE’s work in Asia from 2005 to 2010. The report is the first of its kind in Australia and is part of CARE’s commitment to transparency, which is important for the 87 per cent of Australian donors who want to know more about how donations are spent.
On October 9, two days before the first-ever International Day of the Girl, 15-year-old Malala Yousafzai was shot on her way home from school in Pakistan. She regained consciousness on October 16 but faces a long road to recovery.
CARE is deeply saddened by the news of the attack on Malala, whose courage and hope make her a true hero in the movement to assure girls around the world have access to education. Our thoughts are with Malala and her family.
Monsoon rains in early to mid September have caused ongoing floods in the provinces of Punjab, Sindh, and Balochistan, southern Pakistan. An estimated 4.5 million people have been affected in some way. More than 300,000 people have been forced to move to relief camps. 89 percent of those affected did not receive any flood warnings.
Waleed Rauf, Country Director of CARE Pakistan, said, “In some areas most of the population is still under the open sky without any shelter and waiting for some relief. People are urgently in need of shelter, clean water, and medical care.”
In July 2010, Pakistan was hit by one of the most devastating flood disasters in the country’s history. The disaster affected 20 million people and inundated nearly 20 percent of the country. The sheer scale and scope of the disaster severely challenged the capacity of the entire humanitarian community (Government, UN and NGOs), including CARE.
Risk of public health crisis and malnutrition rises for over nine million people
Over nine million people who have been affected by severe flooding in Sindh province are at risk of disease and widespread malnutrition, while relief efforts reaching over five million people are under threat due to lack of funds, warned a group of international aid agencies today, including Oxfam, Save the Children, Care and ACTED. They are urgently calling on the donor community to step up its response.

CARE calls for more funding to support women with essential health care and relief items/ “Babies cannot wait for funding to be born”
Geneva/Islamabad, October 20, 2011. CARE International, one of the leading humanitarian organizations, is warning that thousands of women and girls in flood hit regions of Sindh Province in southern Pakistan are at risk of illness and disease due to the current floods.
Just one year after an unprecedented flood affected 20 million people, new flooding is threatening lives and livelihoods in Pakistan.
Sindh, a province in the south of the country, is the worst affected. Nearly one million houses have been damaged, thousands of livestock have been lost and more than five million people are struggling to rescue their livelihoods. The flood has destroyed 1.5 million acres, leaving families dependent on agriculture without food and income.
Islamabad, Pakistan (July 27 2011) - One year on from the unprecedented flooding in Pakistan, millions of people still remain vulnerable living in makeshift tents and shelters and unprepared for another monsoon.
The scale of last year’s floods was huge with one-fifth of the country submerged underwater and 20 million people affected, forced to live in temporary camps or wherever they could find shelter. According to the UN and Pakistani authorities, there are between 2-5 million people who will face a further risk of flooding in the coming weeks.
It's been almost 6 months since the deadly flood water played havoc and left deep marks in the hearts and minds of the whole nation and lives of millions. Affectees are afraid of mere sound of gushing water and still have not recovered. No matter what anyone does for them, the life they used to have cannot be brought back. They lost their long kept belongings, life savings, assets, livelihoods and above all, loved ones.
Village S.K. Berohi, 54 kilometers from Shehdadkot, Sindh
The villagers live in mud houses. Every monsoon, water would enter into the village and in the houses but not more than 2 feet. This time they didn't even imagine what monsoon was bringing. Sanjar Khan, 52 year old farmer, heard from a relative from a nearby village that everyone is leaving for Balochistan (the neighboring province) as deadly flood is coming towards their village. He has been living here for 25 years. Has mother, wife and 2 children in family.
CARE Pakistan was among the few organizations to begin relief operations the day the floods began, six months ago. Now, CARE, like much of the humanitarian community, has transitioned its support in Pakistan to an early recovery focus in areas where people have returned. For both returnees and those who remain displaced, however, falling temperatures across the country are exacerbating the difficulties.
