With good health anything is possible: education, employment and active community life. That’s why we are committed to placing health at the center of action and conversation.
Each year, we are at work in more than 90 countries, whenever and wherever people are in crisis, we are there—saving lives, restoring health and hope.
We respond to an average of 30 natural disasters and humanitarian crises worldwide each year, establish long-term recovery projects and bring disaster preparedness programs to vulnerable communities. Every day, Americares is ready. Today, we are monitoring and assessing these emerging crises.
