Did your family get a care package after World War Two?

Posted by Cherry Bushell on

We are joining CARE International UK in celebration of their 70th anniversary – and of the heart-warming stories of the British families who received aid packages from CARE in the aftermath of World War 2.

Through CARE, Americans could pay $10 to send a 'CARE package' to someone in war-torn Europe. Thousands of families in the UK received such packages containing urgently needed food supplies such as corned beef, tinned fruit, lard, sugar and milk powder.

During their anniversary year CARE International UK are looking to recapture their history and collect stories from people who received these packages – let's help them keep these stories alive!

Did you or your family receive a CARE package?

Please get in touch with CARE to share your memories – a quote, a picture or your full story – as much or as little as you want to share, CARE International UK would love to hear from you.
