EMERGENCY is an independent nonprofit organization that provides support for medical care, rehabilitation and relief efforts for the victims of wars, landmines and poverty around the world.
In today’s conflicts 90 percent of the victims are civilians, of which one in three are children. Every year, war takes the lives of millions of unarmed people worldwide.
In response to human suffering caused by wars, there is an urgent need to promote relief through uncompromising medical excellence. We believe that healing wounds heals communities devastated by wars.
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 NGO EMERGENCY and specialized international staff who are committed to training local medical personnel.
At present EMERGENCY has active programmes in Afghanistan, Central African Republic, Iraq, Italy, Sierra Leone, Lybia and Sudan.
EMERGENCY UK is an independent, non-profit organization registered with the Charity Commission of England and Wales under 1148818.
EMERGENCY UK supports EMERGENCY’s healthcare projects in conflict and post-conflict areas.
