History

Groups of supporters have been active in the U.S. since 2005. On September 4, 2008 EMERGENCY USA - Life Support for Civilian Victims of War and Poverty was incorporated as a nonprofit.

EMERGENCY USA’s medical-humanitarian mission is inspired by the innovation, integrity and accomplishments of the international NGO based in Italy, EMERGENCY, which has operated independently since 1994.
