Americares has deployed a response team and preparing emergency shipments of medicine and relief supplies to help families displaced by the deadly wildfires raging through California.
More than 300,000 people have been evacuated in parts of Southern and Northern California and over 7,600 homes have been destroyed since the fires began late last week. Americares is working 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 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.
