A Healthier Future for South Sudan's Families

Responding to the Refugee Crisis in Europe
 
International Medical Corps is working to respond to the significant amount of need created by the current refugee crisis in Europe. UNHCR estimates that more than 1,000,000 refugees from Syria-as well as from other conflict-ridden places such as Iraq and Afghanistan-traversed the Mediterranean Sea to reach Europe in 2015. Since January 1, 2016, more than 300,000 refugees and migrants from Syria, Afghanistan, Iraq and other nations have reached Europe by sea. project reportread updates from the field
Responding to the Ebola Outbreak in West Africa
 
International Medical Corps is currently in Guinea, Guinea-Bissau, Liberia, Mali and Sierra Leone, and is one of a handful of international NGOs that is treating Ebola patients in West Africa. The WHO has reported over 27,500 cases and 11,200 deaths across West Africa. We are committed to getting to zero cases, and to rebuilding and strengthening the local and regional health systems; engaging community members in recovery through outreach and education programs; and bolstering preparedness. project reportread updates from the field
Emergency Response to Hurricane Matthew
 
On October 4, 2016, Hurricane Matthew made landfall in Haiti as a Category 4 storm with maximum sustained winds of 145 miles per hour. In addition to powerful winds, the storm brought heavy rain - 15-25 inches in southern parts of the country with up to 40 in isolated pockets. With widespread damage to buildings, health facilities, and other structures, International Medical Corps' emergency response team is on the ground in southern Haiti providing surge support to those in need. project reportread updates from the field
Earthquake Relief in Nepal
 
On April 25 at 11:56 local time, a 7.8 magnitude earthquake struck Nepal, with the epicenter in Lamjung District, about 50 miles northwest of Kathmandu and just south of the China border. Dozens of aftershocks followed, including a 6.7 magnitude earthquake on April 26. There are over 4,300 fatalities & more than 8,100 people have been injured, but we know these numbers are likely to significantly increase in the days and weeks to come. More than 8 million people have been affected. project reportread updates from the field
Support Azraq Refugee Camp in Jordan
 
The high number of Syrian refugees now living in Jordan has overwhelmed the country's healthcare system, which struggles to adjust to increased patient loads and shortages of medicines and vaccines. International Medical Corps is providing primary healthcare, secondary care and mental health support to Syrian refugees living in Jordan's camps, urban settings and rural areas. In the Azraq Refugee Camp, the largest camp in Zarqa Governorate, our health teams operate three clinics and a hospital.
Transforming Menstrual Hygiene in Rural Zimbabwe
 
International Medical Corps has been transforming local rural knowledge and behaviours in Zimbabwe through 'Community Health Clubs'. We are currently leading on over 300 clubs across Zimbabwe. After consulting club participants, International Medical Corps has identified an urgent need to improve menstrual hygiene management practices in rural Zimbabwe. Menstruating women are largely excluded from public and family life, and often use harmful materials for menstrual management.
Providing Clean Water During An Emergency
 
During a natural disaster or armed conflict, infrastructure is often damaged or destroyed -- leading to a shortage of clean water; an increased likelihood of disease outbreaks; and the spread of water borne illness. To meet immediate needs and thwart the spread of disease, International Medical Corps works to provide clean water after an emergency, including: distributing water purification tablets; building latrines; rehabilitating water supplies; and launching hygiene education. project reportread updates from the field
Provide medical care to Haiti
 
International Medical Corps has been on the ground in Haiti since 22 hours after the devastating 7.0 earthquake hit in January 2010, taking over 200,000 lives and displacing hundreds of thousands. We were a first-responder to the cholera epidemic that ravaged the fragile post-disaster nation in late 2010 and 2011. And in October 2012, we mobilized an emergency response in the south after Superstorm Sandy wreaked havoc, causing 54 deaths and displacing an additional 200,000 Haitians. project reportread updates from the field
Provide Lifesaving Relief to Drought Victims
 
A severe drought in East Africa has inflicted wide scale crop failures and food insecurity throughout communities already struggling to survive, affecting more than 10 million people. Thousands of refugees, the majority from Somalia, are fleeing into neighboring Kenya and Ethiopia - at some camps a reported 40 percent of new arrivals are acutely malnourished. Your support can help us bring lifesaving relief and supplies to those suffering from the worst drought in decades. project reportread updates from the field
