What We Do
We respond to disasters, the ones you see and the ones you don't. When an injured child is pulled from the rubble of a massive earthquake or an expectant mom struggles without health insurance, we are there with aid that restores health and saves lives.
AmeriCares just saved a lot of lives here. The aid arrived just in time. Without this shipment, I don’t know what we would do. Dr. Douze in Haiti
When poverty, disease, or deadly conflict cause health crises, we deliver medicines, medical supplies and humanitarian aid to a trusted network of clinics, hospitals and health care providers around the world. We also create and support programs that increase capacity, improve quality and provide more access to health care in the world’s poorest countries and here in the U.S.
Since 1982, AmeriCares work has been characterized by compassion, expertise, quick response, and aid that works for people who need it.
How We Do It
Whenever, wherever people are in crisis, we work with you, our donors and partners, to deliver the help they need.
Efficient and Effective
When combined with our expertise and resources, the donations of our supporters are multiplied many, many times. In fact, since 2010, for every dollar donated, we have provided $20 in aid. 97% of our expenses support programs and relief for people in need. AmeriCares receives high rankings for efficiency from Charity Navigator and meets the Better Business Bureau standards for charity and accountability.
