The Department of Health in the US Virgin Islands needs help with its COVID response plan in the form of medical personnel and equipment, especially when the surge hits the Islands. FEMA has requested IMANA to provide the personnel while it arranges the needed equipment and supplies.

IMANA Medical Relief is deploying its medical relief teams, in collaboration with FEMA, to hospitals in St. Thomas, St. Croix and St. John, Our volunteers will do 10 day rotations, travel there on a Friday, orientation day Saturday, work Sunday to Saturday and return on Sunday. The incoming team will be orientated and briefed by the outgoing teams while working together on Saturdays.
