Americares has deployed an emergency team to respond to the immediate health needs of communities on the U.S. Southeast Coast affected by the destructive power of Hurricane Florence. Our response team is already working with our local partners and implementing relief efforts, but we need your help. We are preparing shipments of emergency medicines and relief supplies, including supplies for displaced families, as well as support to damaged health clinics.
After tearing through Guam and the Marshall Islands, Typhoon Mangkhut made landfall in northern Luzon on 9/15 killing dozens of people and forcing tens of thousands to flee their homes, Americares dispatched a medical team to impacted areas. The emergency response team arrived in Cagayan the following morning. After meeting with local officials, the team distributed generators, newborn kits of medical supplies and cleaning supplies to the Rural Health Unit and Birthing Center which was partially damaged due to Mangkhut. *Funds will go to the Worldwide Disaster Relief Fund
