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.
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 human 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.
