International Medical Corps Croatia is working to relieve the suffering of those affected by conflict, natural disaster and disease. We deliver emergency medical and related services, as well as training, helping devastated communities recover quickly and build self-reliance.
International Medical Corps Croatia is an independent, nonprofit association that operates in collaboration with International Medical Corps and International Medical Corps UK. We share the same mission, vision and core values, as well as operational resources, for the implementation of program activities.
Our Impact Around the World
We’re active around the globe
Our staff numbers more than 7,000 worldwide, with 95% recruited locally. Because our approach encompasses relief, recovery and resilience, training is an essential and consistent part of everything we do. Our strategy ensures that the knowledge required to prepare for and respond to future emergencies remains anchored in the communities we serve.
Fighting Ebola in Africa

We're responding to the largest hunger crisis in decades
In Somalia, South Sudan, Nigeria, Yemen and Ethiopia, millions of people are at risk of starvation.
