Here at CHC, we are driven by the belief that health care is a right, not a privilege. We work tirelessly to care for the underserved in our state. At times, disasters occur beyond Connecticut that remind us of us of how fragile life is and the global need to care for one another.
We have viewed with shock and sadness the devastation of parts of Nepal from a powerful earthquake. We truly are a global community, and many of us have friends or family in Nepal. I have been asked what we can do to help, so I’m sending this along a list of organizations you may want to consider contributing to.
Please keep the people of Nepal, as well as those with loved ones in Nepal in your thoughts during this difficult time.
