LIFE SUPPORT FOR CIVILIAN VICTIMS OF WAR AND POVERTY
EMERGENCY USA supports construction and management of international projects for medical care:
• Hospitals specifically dedicated to war victims, providing skilled surgical intervention in emergencies
• Physical and social rehabilitation centers for victims of anti-personnel mines and other war injuries
• First aid posts for emergency treatment and healthcare centers for primary care
• Hospitals offering specialized therapy in places where unmet needs are demonstrated
By building high quality, sustainable regional medical centers (rather than temporary, or minimal-care facilities) EMERGENCY partners with the local population in war torn communities to provide health care services that reach beyond walls to heal communities.
Since 1994 EMERGENCY teams have provided assistance to over 4,668,900 people.
