Northrup Grumman is one of Americares oldest and most dedicated partners, having joined us in our work to provide health and opportunity worldwide in 1998. Since then, we have worked hand-in-hand to respond to some of the world’s most severe emergencies.
Answering the Call
Northrop Grumman has answered the call for many Americares emergency responses over the years--from their contributions to our Aid to U.S. Terrorist Victims Fund established after 9/11 to support for earthquake victims in South Asia in 2005 to support for our work in Haiti after the 2010 earthquake to their generous response to the 2011 Pacific Earthquake and Tsunami Fund. Most recently, Northrop Grumman acted quickly to provide critical relief aid as Americares responds to the fall 2017 hurricanes.
Partner in Emergency Response
Northrop Grumman is an Americares Emergency Response Partner, providing key resources that allow us to maintain a response platform of medicines, supplies and people. In the wake of an emergency, our relief workers are among the first to arrive and the last to leave, focusing on both short-term relief and long-term restoration of health services and systems. Working in close partnership with affected communities, we stay on to rebuild health care systems and put disaster risk reduction measures in place, making them less vulnerable to the next disaster.
Building on a Strong Partnership
“We are very pleased to be able to build upon our established partnership with Americares by joining the AERP program,” said Carleen Beste, Director of Global Corporate Citizenship for Northrop Grumman. “Supporting Americares ability to prepare for and respond swiftly and effectively to disaster events around the world is critical in getting supplies and resources to those most in need.”
