SOS's international shipments create access to medical care in regions that have been left behind. What's better than creating access is creating sustainability. This month SOS delivered a third shipment in three years to the small island country of St. Vincent & the Grenadines. Working with Louisville's Father Ron Knott and SVG's Ministry of Health, SOS has regularly provided supplies to the two hospitals on the island as well as delivering items for schools and an orphanage. Last year, members of the SOS team and long-time volunteers visited the island to see our supplies having an immediate and dramatic impact. Like health equity in our own city, when people are empowered with equal access to resources, hope blooms and the future changes.
