When Hurricane Sandy struck, the power went out in most of Staten Island, greatly reducing the ability for clinics to provide care to patients. Our mobile medical clinic helps survivors get the crucial health services they need.
“We are grateful to AmeriCares for helping us continue to provide care for patients on Staten Island after this terrible storm. The ability to triage patients and keep a mobile clinic available during this power outage is keeping patients out of the emergency room,” said Dr. David Kim, Executive Director of Beacon Christian Community Health Center. “No one on Staten Island has ever done this before.”
Since 1982, AmeriCares has delivered more than $11 billion in aid to help people in 164 countries.
More than 97% of our overall expenses support our programs. 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.
