Update on Hurricane Ian response in Florida

When Hurricane Ian crashed into Florida on September 28, Heart to Heart International rapidly responded to help people impacted by the destructive storm.

Our disaster response medical team deployed to Florida and treated patients in under-resourced areas of DeSoto and Lee counties for two weeks after the storm.

In addition to providing free medical care, we distributed more than 13,000 hygiene kits to people impacted by the storm and are continuing to support local health clinics working to rebuild.

The following story from the response shows how important healthcare access is in the aftermath of a disaster.

“A young woman with diabetes was able to come to our clinic multiple times during the two weeks we worked in Arcadia, Florida, in DeSoto county. She was in need of insulin but had been unable to get more from her pharmacy, and her home didn’t have power to keep it refrigerated. She was afraid that she would need to start rationing her insulin until she could get another prescription. Heart to Heart International was able to give her several doses of life-saving insulin to keep her healthy until her power was restored.”

Continuing support for Florida healthcare

Thanks to our many incredibly generous donors, including the Glazer family, owners of the Tampa Bay Buccaneers, we were able to position portable health clinics in support of two local healthcare facilities that had been badly damaged in the storm.

These relocatable clinics will fill the gap in healthcare access while the local clinics are being repaired. These clinics provide healthcare services regardless of income or insurance status.

“Heart to Heart International’s clinic gives us the opportunity to give people the care they need in the place they need it in a timely fashion,” said Trey Fletcher whose organization Healthcare Network received one of the relocatable clinics.

8 months later: Ukraine response continues

Heart to Heart International continues to provide medicines, medical supplies and portable medical clinics to help the people of Ukraine. More than $88 million in medical aid and 130,000 hygiene kits have been sent, and 11 portable medical clinics have arrived and are being used in Ukraine. In fact, in the town of Kiyinka, one of those portable medical clinics was being used to treat patients after the town’s healthcare clinic was damaged. After it was repaired, officials moved the portable medical clinic to the neighboring town of Yagidne, which had just lost its paramedic station in a bombing. The paramedic is now able to use the clinic to see and treat patients in the town thanks to this clinic.
