As death rates continue to climb (2.5 million globally, 525,000 in U.S.), Americares is using every resource to fight the pandemic. And while the vaccines bring new hope, the wearing of masks, proper hand washing and social distancing remain the best weapons against infection. They work. So keep on keeping on.
For people affected by poverty or disaster, health is essential to a better future. With good health, they can attend school, be productive at work, care for their families and contribute to strong communities. Poor health puts all of those opportunities at risk. Health is fundamental to all aspects of development.
Give health to a child, a parent, a community. Your gift makes it possible for Americares to get medicine and critical care to people in need. For every $1 donated, Americares can provide $20 in aid. Because we deliver donated medicine and medical supplies to a trusted network of locally-based providers, the impact of your gift is multiplied many times over.
Our donors and partners help our health programs, medicines and supplies reach our neighbors in need in an average of more than 90 countries including the United States each year. Sign up below to get periodic updates and alerts.
