In 2015, AmeriCares responded to many disasters and health emergencies, saving lives and building healthier futures for people in crisis. In 94 countries, in thousands of communities and for millions of people, the medicine, medical supplies and health programs we provided were a critical step to a full, productive life. In all, we provided more than $600 million in aid this past year.
The impact of our work will continue to grow in 2016. In Nepal, AmeriCares is rebuilding clinics destroyed in the devastating April 2015 earthquake. And in Sierra Leone, our team’s work has already resulted in critical improvements at two hospitals in Bonthe—creating safe workplaces for doctors and nurses but also reigniting the community’s trust in these facilities.
