In June 1947 Cooperative for American Remittances to Europe's (CARE) executive director, Paul Comly French, proudly informed the State Department that he had been awarded the Order of Orange-Nassau by the Queen of the Netherlands. A classified study conducted by the American military authorities in Germany in early 1950 showed that eight out of ten people in the American zones and almost everyone in Berlin and Bremen had heard of the CARE package. One reason for CARE's rising popularity among American donors was certainly rooted in the concept of personalized packages from individual to individual. By early 1948 CARE had officially expanded its services beyond Europe to Asia and opened its first offices in Tokyo and the port city of Busan, South Korea. In the early 1955 the organization had offices in 42 countries in Europe, Asia, Latin America, the Middle East, and northern Africa.
