For every $10 donated we can provide $200 in aid.
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 $12 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.
Americares has deployed emergency response experts and expanded aid in Baton Rouge, Louisiana, where historic flooding has killed at least 13 people and forced tens of thousands from their homes.
