Today CARE Chad works with Internal Displaced persons in the Lake Chad, refugee populations from neighboring countries (CAR), and Chadian communities through its 6 field offices in the East (Biltine), South (Gore, Maro) and West (Bol, BagaSola, N’Gouri) of the country, and a coordination, representation and support office in Ndjamena, the capital. CARE Chad has an annual average of 160 staff (local and international).
