The Special Delivery CARE project honored the 5-year mark of the Syrian refugee crisis by sending care packages containing toys, candy, and letters to displaced children in Jordan.

CARE has been sending humanitarian relief to asylum-seekers ever since they first reached out to WWII refugees in 1945. Over 2 million Syrians have already received aid; from food baskets and grocery debit cards, to hygiene kits and emergency shelters.
