EMERGENCY is an independent and neutral organisation that provides free and high quality medical and surgical treatment to the civilian victims of war, landmines and poverty. To achieve its goals EMERGENCY works in countries ravaged by war and poverty. All EMERGENCY facilities are designed, built and run by specialised international personnel who train local staff.
