Millions of people have no soap, no masks, no disinfectant.
The pandemic has affected us all, but especially the poorest people in the world. People who do not even have access to fresh water and soap. They don’t have the chance to follow the most basic hygiene rules to protect themselves from COVID-19.
The international aid organization CARE has launched one of the largest emergency relief operations in its 75-year history to stop the spread of the pandemic.
Together we can help
Thanks to your donation, CARE can directly help affected people around the world to deal with the dangers of COVID-19 and to protect themselves. As an international aid organization, CARE has already launched corona emergency relief programs in 69 countries. With your support, we can achieve much more. We are collecting donations for:
Detergent, soap, disinfectant and canisters for a family
Construction and equipment of special wards for infected people
Information campaigns on hygiene rules and measures to protect people from corona
With enough soap. For use in emergency shelters & refugee camps.

We will double your donation!
No matter how much you are able to give, we appreciate every penny. And CytoSorbents will match every single donation until we reach our collective goal of donating $100,000. All collected donations will go to the CARE COVID-19 Emergency Fund.
We must act now
Please support CARE’s corona emergency relief work! Every donation helps contain the spread of COVID-19 and provides a safer, better future for the women, children and families in their communities. See how CARE is helping here.
The fundraising campaign is international and people from all over the world can participate. For tax reasons, donors from the USA and Germany have their own donation button and donation channel (“International” and “German”). Donors from all other countries can use the other donation button “International”. Donors from the USA and Germany will automatically receive a donation receipt recognized by the tax office from CARE in early 2021. Donors from other countries receive a donation receipt, which is not necessarily recognized by every tax office.
If you wish to be mentioned by name as a donor on our website, this is done on the basis of consent pursuant to Art. 6 (1) lit. a GDPR. You give your consent by sending us a copy of your donation receipt by mail or email.

According to Art. 7 (3) GDPR, you have the right to withdraw your consent at any time. Upon receipt of the withdrawal, we will remove and delete your personal data, provided that there are no prohobiting legal retention periods. Your mention will then also be taken from the website.
CARE is a globally active organization that has been fighting against hardship, poverty and injustice around the globe for 75 years.
In response to COVID-19, CARE is doing humanitarian work, especially in crisis areas, and meeting the urgent needs of more than 100 million people. These include: equipping households and healthcare facilities with hygiene items such as soap and disinfectants. Disseminating accurate prevention information to educate people. Installation of hand washing stations in schools, markets and other public places. Provision of clean water through emergency water transport and distribution of storage containers for safe water. Addressing food shortages and other economic effects of pandemic lockdowns.
The collected donations go directly and 100% to CARE and are used there for CARE’s worldwide COVID-19 emergency response. In particular, these are health and hygiene programs to prevent and contain COVID-19 in order to alleviate the effects of the pandemic. And that directly on site: The CARE state employees – most of whom come from the communities in which they live and work – have the close relationships and trust that are necessary to get people to act. Many CARE country teams have experienced employees who are familiar with dealing with epidemics such as cholera, Ebola and Zika.
Formal and expert recommendations for CytoSorb Therapy are in place in many countries. The FDA in USA granted CytoSorb Therapy Emergency Use Authorization for use in critically-ill COVID-19 patients with imminent or confirmed respiratory failure.
CytoSorb Therapy reduces inflammatory mediators in the blood and targets the underlying pathophysiology in critically-ill COVID-19 patients. Hyperinflammation (often referred to as cytokine storm) may be a key component in many critically-ill COVID-19 patients and controlling the inflammatory response may be as important as targeting the virus.
