As infection and death rates continue to climb (318,000 deaths in the U.S. and more than 1.6 million globally), Americares is using every resource to fight the pandemic. And a reminder: The wearing of masks, proper hand washing and social distancing remain the best weapons against infection. They work. So let’s do this.
For people affected by poverty or disaster, health is essential to a better future. With good health, they can attend school, be productive at work, care for their families and contribute to strong communities. Poor health puts all of those opportunities at risk. Health is fundamental to all aspects of development.
Since our founding in 1979, Americares has delivered more than $17 billion in quality medical aid and innovative health programs to 164 countries, including the U.S.
