Secretary of State Hillary Rodham Clinton will deliver remarks at CARE’s 2010 National Conference on May 11 at 11:25 a.m. at the Ronald Reagan Building in Washington, D.C.

Founded in 1945, CARE is one of the world’s largest humanitarian aid agencies. Working side by side with poor people in 72 countries, CARE helps empower communities to address the greatest threats to their survival. Women are at the heart of CARE’s efforts to improve health, education, and economic development because experience shows that a woman’s achievements yield dramatic benefits for her entire family. CARE is also committed to providing lifesaving assistance during times of crisis and helping rebuild safer, stronger communities.
