As COVID-19 continues to spread, the people who are our best defense to contain and mitigate this pandemic also face the highest risk of becoming infected themselves. Those people are patient-facing healthcare workers.
Vecino Health Centers is on the front line in Houston. Staff at Vecino Health Centers have a critical role in the coronavirus crisis as a frontline provider of care, including screening and testing, to more than 11,000 patients in northeast Houston.
You can help. The situation is fluid, and we need local financial support because it gives us the flexibility to use funds for specific needs as they arise. Right now, for example, large supplies of personal protective equipment, such as gowns, gloves, masks, and hand sanitizer, need to be ordered for staff who are in contact with patients who could be infected with the coronavirus.
100% of your gift will fund supplies, services and education related to the response and recovery of the COVID-19 pandemic.
