AmeriCares is a nonprofit global health and disaster relief organization that delivers medicines, medical supplies and aid to people in need around the world and across the United States. Since it was established in 1982, AmeriCares has distributed more than $10 billion in humanitarian aid to 164 countries.
We deliver medical aid and support ongoing health programs, such as bringing nutritional supplements to hungry children or providing crucial aid to fight deadly cholera. In the United States, we supply aid to 400 clinics serving the uninsured or underinsured and operate four free clinics in Connecticut. During emergencies, our teams are among the first to respond with medicines and medical assistance. After major disasters, AmeriCares stays to help rebuild communities and restore health services.
We are privately funded through the generosity of financial donors, and also receive vital in-kind support from pharmaceutical and health care companies.
Take action to improve health and save lives today. AmeriCares relies on your support to help others.

We also rely on the assistance of a wonderful team of volunteers at our Connecticut headquarters and free clinics (we cannot accept volunteers for relief work in the field). Learn more about our volunteer opportunities: americares.org/aboutus/jobs
We work in dozens of countries around the world, improving health care in areas of desperate need. We also help those without access to health care here at home. AmeriCares has offices in El Salvador, Haiti, India, Sri Lanka and Japan in addition to our global headquarters in Stamford, Connecticut.
We are an efficient, accountable and highly respected global health organization. We earn top marks for transparency from nonprofit rating site Charity Navigator and receive donations from many of the largest and most respected health care organizations in the world. Because we use contributions in tandem with high-value donated pharmaceuticals, each donation gets leveraged many times over. Historically, for every $100 donated, AmeriCares is able to deliver $2,500 worth of medicines and vital aid.
