Alexion Pharmaceuticals, Inc. shares AmeriCares mission to provide urgently needed relief aid to people affected by disasters around the globe. Its support has helped AmeriCares maintain the expertise and capabilities necessary to launch emergency responses swiftly and effectively.
Alexion became an AmeriCares Annual Emergency Response Partner in fiscal year 2011, recognizing that preparation is critical to relief efforts. Our Annual Emergency Response Partners provide reliable financial support that is essential to maintaining the strong foundation from which we respond to disaster events. This support helps AmeriCares conduct in-country assessments, pre-position emergency medical and relief aid in disaster-prone regions of the world, and maintain emergency pharmacy inventory at our headquarters, as well as regional warehouse and distribution hubs. These capabilities, combined with AmeriCares in-house expertise in global logistics, emergency medical needs and the restoration of local health services, are instrumental to our ability to mobilize resources quickly when disasters strike.
Alexion Pharmaceuticals was also a generous supporter of AmeriCares response to Hurricane Sandy and Japan earthquake relief. In addition to a generous donation, Alexion also launched a matching gift program in which it matched its employees’ online contributions to the AmeriCares relief funds for both Hurricane Sandy and Japan earthquake relief.
