    The toymaker of Azraq

      They refer to him simply as “the toymaker.” At 65 years of age with a thin white beard and a broad smile, Mohammed Asaf certainly looks the part. He lives at the Azraq refugee camp in eastern Jordan, home to more than 30,000 Syrians forced to flee the violence in their homeland. For many, living in the camp can feel like an extended feeling of i... Read More

    Day 1 of the World Humanitarian Summit: A+ for effort, B for achievement

    The World Humanitarian Summit has had a rough ride over the past few months, not least from us at CARE, who have noisily demanded it engage with the need for political action and that it fully address the huge gender differences in disaster and conflict. However, to my surprise, at the end of the first day, it’s mostly achieved its aims.   ... Read More

    Hope, not hopeless – A future for South Sudan

    When I was an aid worker in southern Sudan in the 1990s, the fight for independence against Sudan had already been running for many years. It was Africa’s longest civil war - but there was hope. Hope that the fighting would one day end and South Sudan would become its own country with its own leaders, and that security, stability and deve... Read More

    Gifts and Wishes

    In a few days Muslims around the world will celebrate their most important religious holidays: Eid al-Fitr, which marks the end of Ramadan, an entire month of fasting from dawn until sunset. This Ramadan has probably been the hottest and longest Ramadan that I have ever been through in my life. People are fasting up to 16 hours every day. We are not eating and dr... Read More

    Three years of war

She sits up straight, her eyes directed to the front, soaking up every word my colleague Yousef says. He explains what assistance she can receive where and from whom, where she can get support for babies, ... Read More
