About This Cause

EMERGENCY provides free, high-quality healthcare to victims of war, poverty and landmines, alongside building hospitals and training local medical staff. Founded in 1994, EMERGENCY has treated over 8 million people in 17 different countries and currently operates in Afghanistan, Central African Republic, Iraq, Italy, Sierra Leone, and Sudan.
EMERGENCY impacts the communities where it works in multiple ways. By building hospitals and training medical staff, we create sustainable healthcare infrastructure that will continue once we hand over our projects to national staff and local authorities. This approach helps contribute to the strengthening of national healthcare systems and to the empowerment of local individuals.
We also reach vulnerable communities who would otherwise have no access to healthcare. Our patients include those who have been injured by war, those who have fled from war and those who are too poor to pay for private healthcare – which is often the only option available in low-income countries, in countries in conflict, and in those recovering from war.
Every day EMERGENCY deals with the destruction and suffering caused by war. For this reason EMERGENCY has always been committed to promoting a culture of peace not only in the countries where its medical and surgical projects are based, but everywhere in the world. We repudiate the use of violence, terrorism and war as instruments to resolve disputes between individuals, peoples and nations. We want a world based on social justice, on solidarity, on reciprocal respect and dialogue.
