There is an urgent need to relieve human suffering caused by wars. We believe that healing wounds heals communities devastated by wars. In today’s conflicts up to 90 percent of the victims are civilians, of which 1/3 are children. Every year war takes the lives of millions of unarmed people worldwide.
EMERGENCY USA raises awareness and funds to provide permanent infrastructure for medical care and rehabilitation efforts for victims of war and poverty.
The programs we support provide free-of-charge, high-standard medical and surgical care in war-torn areas. All facilities are designed, built and managed by the NGO EMERGENCY, which was founded in Italy in 1994. The specialized international staff is committed to training local medical personnel.
