About CARE Australia:
CARE Australia works to defeat global poverty by supporting women to create lasting change in their communities and withstand disaster impacts within Asia and the Pacific, and across the globe.

Launching the ‘Her Circle’ campaign in January to coincide with International Women’s Day 2022 in March, CARE acknowledges the role of women as the pillars and community builders of society.
