Headquartered just down the road from Americares in Stamford, Connecticut, OdysseyRe has been a strategic partner since 2001. The company is one of the largest supporters of Americares four free clinics in Connecticut as well as a key partner in responding to emergencies and providing health programs around the globe.
Broad Impact – Both Near and Far
OdysseyRe has proudly supported a distinctively broad range of Americares programs, helping to provide clinical services and disaster responses both near and far. Their support has included: funding for Mobile Health Centers that provide free clinical services and community health to over 100,000 people living in the slums of Mumbai, India; start-up capital for Americares Free Clinics here in the Connecticut; and both general and targeted emergency response aid. In addition, OdysseyRe staff have dedicated their time to assemble emergency kits here in our Stamford, CT warehouse.
Partner in Emergency Response
OdysseyRe is an Americares Emergency Response Partner, providing key resources that allow us to maintain a response platform of medicines, supplies and people—ready to respond in a moment’s notice. Even prior to joining the AERP, the company was a key partner in international disaster relief efforts. With the company’s swift and generous response to the 2010 earthquake in Haiti, Americares was able to quickly airlift and distribute medicines and relief supplies to severely damaged health facilities.
Helping Here at Home
Through their leadership support of Americares Free Clinics, OdysseyRe is helping to provide uninsured and underinsured Connecticut residents with comprehensive health care. The company initially championed Americares Free Clinics in Norwalk and Bridgeport, Connecticut, and was an early proponent of establishing a new mobile clinic to serve low-income, uninsured Stamford residents. When we transitioned the mobile clinic into a permanent facility in 2017, OdysseyRe supported us every step of the way. Read more
