With good health
anything is possible.
Americares saves lives and improves health for people affected by poverty or disaster so they can reach their full potential.
For people affected by poverty or disaster, health is essential to a better future. With good health, they can attend school, be productive at work, care for their families and contribute to strong communities. Poor health puts all of those opportunities at risk. Health is fundamental to all aspects of development.
Since our founding in 1979, Americares has delivered more than $13 billion in quality medical aid and innovative health programs to 164 countries, including the U.S.
Our health programs and medical donations reach more than 90 countries and all 50 states in the U.S. each year, saving lives and transforming communities.
Louisiana, United States
One morning, the staff of Total Family Medical – a free clinic in Robert, LA - arrived at work to find an 18 wheeler in the clinic parking lot. The driver had been sitting there all night waiting for the clinic to open. The fact that this clinic was open at all sets this story in motion.
After Hurricane Matthew cut a deadly path through the Caribbean and battered the coast of the southern U.S., Americares is at work helping survivors in Haiti and in the U.S.
Syria, Middle East
More than six years of brutal conflict in Syria have created one of the world’s most urgent humanitarian crises. As the civil conflict rages on, the need for health care services continues to increase for those people displaced within Syria, as well as Syrian families fleeing to neighboring countries.
