Did You Know?
We have tightened our policy for sharing trip photographs. While we appreciate viewing all photos, we can only share photos externally that have a signed photo release. Photos from the field play a key role in Americares work. They help us make a compelling case to donors who contribute medical products and funding.

We ask that you take Americares photo release forms ( Spanish version) with you on your trip and ask patients to sign a release form acknowledging their consent. When photographing pediatric patients, a parent or legal guardian must sign on behalf of the child.
Please contact us with any questions.  Read more of our FAQ.
