Diplomacy and Humanity

CARE’s 58th annual anniversary celebration was held on May 7. Many embassies sponsored private pre-ball dinners, including: embassies of Hungary, Argentina, Bolivia, Korea, Jordan, Austria, Croatia. Denmark, Dominican Republic, Kuwait, Israel, Finland, France, Luxembourg, Malaysia, Pakistan, Nicaragua, Romania, Singapore, Belgium, Morocco, Myanmar and the Taipei Economic and Cultural Representative’s Office. After dinner, guests headed to the Organization of American States for dancing and dessert. CARE, one of the world’s largest humanitarian organizations, works in poor communities in over 70 developing countries that lack the resources to overcome poverty. Last year, the organization spent more than $447 million on over 770 poverty-fighting projects around the world. This year’s anniversary celebration raised $430,000. Impressively, 93% of money raised in their budget goes directly to programs and non-administrative costs.
