Despite this unusual year, our international work has not slowed down. In the time of greatest need, we have increased our humanitarian shipments around the world.
Recently our partner Ramazani Djuma, CEO of Good Helper Foundation, traveled to his native DRC to deliver facemasks, sanitizers and other medical supplies needed to combat COVID-19. While visiting the hospital in his hometown, he saw the hospital was reduced to using cardboard as a mattress on the beds. The image was a stark reminder that, even in a public health emergency, we are incredibly blessed with the medical care in our community. Denise Sears, CEO, affirms that "SOS and the Good Helper Foundation will continue medical shipments to ensure no patient sleeps on a cardboard mattress again."
