Wildfires are devastating communities across California, causing more than 300,000 people to evacuate their homes and threatening many more. The Camp Fire in Northern California -- one of three blazing across the state -- is the most destructive in state history. We want to ensure that, if you are in an affected community, you find access to shelter. And if you are looking to help with disaster relief efforts, you know the most effective ways to contribute.

Mission: The right to the highest attainable standard of physical and mental healthâ ¦ The right to equality before the lawâ ¦ The right to be free from tortureâ ¦ Doctors of the World mobilizes the health sector to promote and protect these and other basic human rights and civil liberties for all people, in the United States and abroad. In collaboration with a network of affiliates around the world and in partnership with local communities, we work where health is diminished or endangered by violations of human rights and civil liberties. We provide essential care and services while training community residents to carry on the mission of health at the conclusion of our efforts. We combine these services with appropriate advocacy to ensure maximum impact. We mobilize American health care professionals as volunteers, bringing their expertise and idealism to those who need it most to achieve our goals.
