Our goal: To save lives and build healthier futures for people in crisis in the United States and around the world.
Every day, Americares puts critically needed medicines and supplies in the hands of frontline health workers and develops innovative, sustainable health improvements in their communities. Since our founding in 1982 we have delivered more than $12 billion in humanitarian aid to 164 countries, including the United States.
Make a Difference: Together with the support of donors and partners, we’re making the world a healthier place. You can help us make a lifesaving difference to people in crisis.
Efficient and effective: Americares leverages every dollar donated to deliver $20 in aid. More than 97 percent of all donations directly improve the health of people in need – and less than 3 percent are used for administration and overhead.
