Americares saves lives and improves health for people affected by poverty or disaster so they can reach their full potential.
It has been a devastating year for hurricanes and floods, along with disease outbreaks, earthquakes and wildfires. The need has never been greater. Learn more about our relief work around the world and here at home and how you can help.
For nearly 40 years, Americares has responded to disasters – the ones that make headlines and the ones that don’t. Whether it’s a hurricane in Texas or cholera in Yemen, we are committed to help people get health care whenever, wherever they are in need. To do this, we need you. Together, we can be ready for the next crisis – whatever form it takes. Give today.
Harvey, Irma, Maria – a brutal hurricane season that is not over yet. In Puerto Rico, Dominica, Texas, Florida, survivors face months and years of recovery even as new storms form. We need your help to restore health and rebuild health systems for people who have lost so much - and to ensure that when the next hurricane strikes, we will have the resources to respond.
Hurricane Maria brought its devastating power to some of the same Caribbean islands recently savaged by Hurricane Irma. It is the worst storm to hit Puerto Rico in 80 years and caused major damage, shutting down power for the entire island. Our response teams are on the ground in Puerto Rico and Dominica mobilizing Maria relief.
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 $15 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.

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.
