"We're on the ground, working with local partners that supply medicines to 150 health care outlets on a regular basis. That's the core of our response. What we also do very well is we find places where big institutional responders leave gaps. We are very good at filling these gaps with local partners and in the process, we develop relationships with people who will need our help in the moment and over a longer period of time." - Curt Welling, CEO, AmeriCares
Since it was established in 1979, AmeriCares has delivered more than $12 billion in humanitarian aid to 164 countries, including the United States.
More than 97 percent of all donations directly improve the health of people in need. Because we deliver donated medical and humanitarian aid to a trusted network of health care partners around the world, we multiply the impact of contributions from our supporters many, many times over.
