We have exciting news we’d like to share with you!  Starting at 12:01 am EDT on June 13th, GlobalGiving will match online donations to our projects at 50%. 

This means that your gift will go 50% further to help families affected by tragedy overcome difficult obstacles for a happier, healthier future.

Consider giving again to Emergency Aid to Tsunami & Earthquake Survivors or see our many other projects helping devastated communities worldwide recover and rebuild.

And there is more.

The organization that raises the most funds on Bonus Day will receive an additional $1,000 from GlobalGiving.  And an additional $1,000 will be given to the organization with the most unique donors

There are $75,000 available in matching funds – we need you to act fast before they’re gone!  If you’ve been waiting for the right time to give, Wednesday is the day.  Please don’t hesitate.

Our lifesaving work is possible because of you.  Thank you in advance for your generosity.

Japan 1 Year Report
Japan 1 Year Report

More than a year ago, the northern coast of Japan was decimated following a massive earthquake and tsunami.  Countless people lost their lives, homes and business were destroyed, and radiation fears due to the damaged nuclear reactors in Fukushima have added to the emotional toll of the disaster, as communities continue the long process of recovery.

International Medical Corps was on-the-ground 48 hours after the earthquake, reaching 20,000 people at evacuation centers.                

Since then, we’ve partnered with local organizations and the Japanese government to:

  • Provide critical supplies and medicines to evacuees in temporary housing;
  • Improve access to, and quality of mental health services by strengthening the capacity of local organizations and first-responders;
  • Rebuild neighborhoods;
  • Offer employment opportunities for those who lost their livelihoods following the disaster.

Our progress was possible thanks to your generosity.  Please, take some time today and read our 1-year report detailing our work in Japan since March 2011. 

And on behalf of all of us at International Medical Corps, thank you so much for your support!

This Sunday is the Academy Awards©. Millions will be watching as Hollywood recognizes the past year's most acclaimed films.

That got us thinking: what if we could get even a small fraction of those millions to show their support for saving lives and rebuilding communities devastated by disease, conflict, and natural disaster?

Before the Academy Awards© this Sunday, we want to add 1,000 new Facebook supporters. "Like" us on Facebook today and help us reach our goal before February 26.

When you "like" us on Facebook and share our posts, you're helping more and more people to find out about our lifesaving work. And when more people know how they can help, we can restore health and hope to more communities around the world!

"Like" us on Facebook today and don't forget to share with your friends, so they can be part of the campaign too!

Thank you. We know we can count on your support!

2012 is almost here and we would like to take a moment to thank you for supporting our emergency response efforts in Japan.

This year with the help of our amazing supporters, we were able to respond to the emergency in Japan, as well as crises in Libya and East Africa, while continuing our long-term recovery programs worldwide. You can see for yourself --click on the video below and hear firsthand from our staff on the frontlines, working in some of the most unstable and dangerous regions of the world.



And as we look to the future, we hope we can count on your support again.

Your generosity was crucial during our initial emergency response and it’s just as important now, as we work to help these devastated communities rebuild and recover. Please considering making a donation or using your new GlobalGiving gift card to help our rebuilding efforts.

Your donation will help us start 2012 strong!

On behalf of all of at International Medical Corps, thank you for your support.

GlobalGiving has announced an amazing opportunity and we need your help to make it happen! 

Starting at October 19, 12:01 am EDT, GlobalGiving will match 30% of all online donations up to $1,000 per donor until the end of the day or when funds run out.  In addition, GlobalGiving is offering a $1,000 bonus to the project that raises the most that day and a $1,000 bonus to the project that receives donations from the most individual donors. 

Think about it: your gift of $30 becomes $40… $100 becomes $130…. $300 becomes $400…

But funds will run out quickly and we need you to act fast on October 19 to take advantage of this match before it’s too late. 

With your support for Emergency Aid to Tsunami & Earthquake Survivors, International Medical Corps has:

  • In the immediate aftermath of the crisis, provided support to the Japanese community by distributing hot foods, cleaning equipment, medications, and rental cars and computers to local NGOs.
  • Strengthened Japan’s mental health response capabilities through workshops and conferences on coping strategies for employees, students, teachers, and parents.

In the past, your support has meant so much to countless men, women, and children in need.  Now, you can give knowing that your donation will go 30% further and that 92 cents of every dollar you give goes to program-related activities.

Please – act soon and your donation could save lives. 

Thank you.  We know we can count on your support.
