CARA defends the legal rights of poor people who cannot afford a lawyer and helps them to save their homes, keep their jobs and protect their loved ones. We also provide HIV/AIDS prevention, care and support, striving to reduce premature deaths, providing quality basic education for all (especially girls), water and sanitation.
To continue the work that CARA provides in the UK and Africa, we rely on people like you. Please consider helping us with a monthly, or you can make a one-off donation, to our work.
