Side by Side, Responding to Those in Need

Over the years, Elevance Health Foundation has been a true partner to Americares. The company and its employees have been by our side as we launched several response efforts, including the South Asia Earthquake in 2005, the China earthquake in 2008, the Pacific earthquake and tsunami in 2011, Hurricane Sandy in 2012 and, most recently, Hurricanes Harvey, Irma and Maria. Elevance Health Foundation’s membership in the AERP provides a platform for action and impact, promoting the health and safety of people worldwide.

Partner in Emergency Response

Elevance Health Foundation is an Americares Emergency Response Partner, providing key resources that allow us to maintain a response platform of medicines, supplies and people. Thanks to Elevance Health Foundation and the other members of the AERP, when disasters strike, Americares can launch robust responses at a moment’s notice, delivering critical medicines and emergency supplies virtually anywhere in the world.
