In today’s conflicts 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.
We believe that healing wounds heals communities devastated by wars. 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 Italian NGO EMERGENCY. The specialized international staff is committed to training local medical personnel.
