Americares has deployed a response team and emergency shipments of medicine and relief supplies to help families displaced by the deadly wildfires raging through California. Americares continues to work closely with partner clinics, including free clinics and community health centers, as well as national and regional response partners, to meet the health needs in affected areas.
Americares responded to Hurricane Michael, the most powerful storm to hit the Florida Panhandle in the area's history. The storm slammed the Florida Panhandle mid-day October 10, leaving a path of near total devastation, fatalities, and extensive damage to infrastructure including health facilities. Americares is actively working with area health care partners in the aftermath of the storm.
Americares deployed an emergency team in response to the immediate health needs of communities on the U.S. Southeast Coast affected by the destructive power of Hurricane Florence. The massive storm brought damaging winds, devastating storm surges and torrential rainfall, producing catastrophic flooding. Today, survivors are still facing a major relief and recovery effort.
Americares has a long history of responding to disasters. We respond to an average of 30 disasters each year; we continue providing relief to communities affected by other recent natural disasters such as wildfires in California or flooding in the Midwest, and infrastructure damage left by last year's Hurricanes Harvey, Irma and Maria.
