All about Americares
Americares saves lives and builds healthier futures for people in crisis in the United States and around the world. Since it was established in 1979, Americares has distributed more than $15 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 more than 800 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.

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).
Where does Americares work?
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, India, Nepal, Liberia, Sierra Leone, Tanzania and the Philippines in addition to our global headquarters in Stamford, Connecticut.
What sets Americares apart?
We are an efficient, accountable and highly respected, health-focused global aid and development 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. For every $10 donated we can provide $200 in aid. More than 97 percent of our expenses support local health programs..
