Response from CARE Ethiopia

Thank you for sharing your concerns with us.  We take all allegations seriously.

“CARE International in Ethiopia would like to note that as an organization held accountable by strong, globally agreed core values of respect, integrity and diversity, we are a non-partisan, non-religious entity that does not discriminate on any basis.  We recognize that the erroneous language used in an internal advisory has understandably caused pain and anger.  We confirm that no ill will was intended.  The communication was purely intended as an internal advisory in advance of any festivals or holidays, to keep our staff safe and secure.”

CARE is investigating this matter in order to ensure that any actions taken are consistent with our values as an organization.
