New York & California Hospitals

The first coronavirus hotspot in our nation was in the state of New York. Little did we know, the fast-spreading epidemic in China quickly turned into a global pandemic, affecting nations all around the world, including our very own home here in the United States. 

Our organization quickly pivoted to address the immediate need of personal protective equipment in hospitals experiencing a spike in coronavirus patients. The sudden increase in hospitalizations led to a quick depletion of surgical protective supplies, which have not only been necessary to protect healthcare providers but also to prevent the transmittable virus from continuing to spread. The Wealth By Health Foundation sent a shipment of medical isolation kits, surgical face masks, N95s, and disposable disinfectant wipes to help in anyway we can. 

In our home state of California and during a critical phase of the pandemic in the US, we have found a way to contribute to our local hospitals by donating vitamin c supplements, herbal immune boosters, medical isolation kits, surgical masks, and nitrile exam gloves to protect our frontline heroes. We thank our healthcare heroes for their efforts, sacrifices, and relentless commitment during these precarious times. 

New York Hospitals: The Brooklyn Hospital Center, NYC Mount Sinai Hospital
