Accreditation Commission for Health Care (ACHC) is donating $10,000 to Direct Relief to assist with aid and recovery efforts in response to destruction from Hurricane Florence in North and South Carolina.
“We stand in full support of our friends, neighbors and caregivers here in the Carolinas who have been affected by this massive storm,” said ACHC President and CEO José Domingos. “As residents of North Carolina, we all watched nervously as this most imposing weather event advanced slowly towards us. And while we consider ourselves lucky to have been spared the worst of its effects, there are still thousands of people who were not so fortunate and many who are still experiencing the dreadful scale of its destruction in terms of flooding, displacement from their homes, lack of access to care and supplies, or worse. Our hearts go out to those who may have lost loved ones and our hope is that contributions like this can help with what will be a long road to recovery.”
Direct Relief collaborates with clinics all over the world to equip doctors and nurses with life-saving medicines and supplies to help care for survivors of disasters who face enormous hardship to recover.
