Every day, Americares delivers essential medicines and supplies to hundreds of hospitals and health clinics in the developing world and to free clinics serving the uninsured in the U.S. Since cholera began its deadly spread in Haiti in 2010, for example, the supply of nearly 500,000 treatments for patients with the disease kept a lot of people alive, while ongoing support also helped 465,000 including health workers, lower their risk of the disease.
“Americares just saved a lot of lives here. The aid arrived just in time. Without this shipment, I don’t know what we would do.”
