International Medical Corps supports those in over 35 countries that are hit by adversity, working with them to recover, rebuild and gain the skills and tools to become self-reliant.
We assist those in the world’s poorest countries, often partnering with national and local leaders, to provide better health care and related services in vulnerable communities looking to build a better life for their people.
We are there for hundreds of thousands of displaced people, many of whom have lost everything and survive by clinging to all that’s left: hope. We are there too for those who face less visible but equally acute emergencies such as malnutrition, the lack of clean water or a complicated child-birth. We work with partner agencies and local leaders to provide a broad array of services,often focusing on children and women with programs that improve maternal and child health and nutrition, provide for psychosocial needs and prevent gender-based violence.
Once urgent needs are met, we help communities in crisis-prone areas prepare in advance to withstand disaster should it come.
