About the charity
Established in 1984, International Medical Corps delivers lifesaving health care in emergencies for people affected by disaster, disease or conflict. No matter where, no matter what the conditions, they are the first there.
They stay, long after the initial crisis ends, helping people survive and rebuild through the building blocks of recovery – water, food, safety, medicine.
Their work is built on collaboration with local communities, transferring skills and knowledge to health care professionals and volunteers, even in the midst of an emergency response deployment.
This lays the groundwork for faster, longer-lasting recovery, and helps build the kind of confidence, pride, and self-esteem essential for political stability and resilience.
