About the customer
A history of giving, caring
CARE was founded in 1945 to provide a way for Americans to send lifesaving food and supplies—through the original “CARE Packages”—to European survivors of WWII.
CARE went on to become a leading humanitarian organization, fighting global poverty by driving community-based efforts to improve basic education, helping prevent the spread of HIV, increasing access to clean water and sanitation, providing emergency aid, expanding economic opportunity, and protecting natural resources in more than 90 countries.
The nonprofit places special focus on working alongside poor girls and women because, equipped with the proper resources, they have the power to lift whole families and entire communities out of poverty.
In 2018, CARE served 9.9 million people through humanitarian response programs.
In Bihar, India, there are over 110 million people. In 2005, only 39 people a month were accessing public health facilities. Fast-forward to 2018, and that's now 10,000 people a month.Charu Goyle, Associate Vice President, CARE USA
Cloud accelerates lasting change
As the scope of CARE’s global humanitarian aid programs grows, the nonprofit is relying on Oracle Cloud Infrastructure to support their scalability and transparency, as well as the flow of near-real-time data to improve program efficiency.
For example, CARE needs to supply its headquarters and donors with accurate information, but in the past, it had to run its financials offline because of local technology limitations. With the cloud, CARE can get fresh information every 30 minutes, ensuring that financial controls and criteria are met before making commitments and dispersing funds to suppliers.
