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 worked in 100 countries and reached more than 56 million people around the world.
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 organization relies on Oracle Cloud Infrastructure’s compute and storage services to support its scalability, transparency, and program efficiency.
For example, CARE uses financial management software running on Oracle Cloud Infrastructure to track expenditures against tax laws in host countries, as well as satisfy the complex grant and compliance requirements from global donors.
Similarly, CARE is deploying its time-and-expense reporting system on Oracle Cloud Infrastructure, replacing an antiquated system with a cloud-based user experience that’s more efficient for thousands of employees and contractors.
CARE estimates that running the software on Oracle Cloud Infrastructure will help it save a quarter-million dollars a year, freeing up more funds for food, medicine, and other critical aid.
