IMANA NEWS & IMANA MEDICAL RELIEF
A Letter of Appreciation from the USVI Governor
August 19th, 2020
Earlier this year, FEMA requested IMANA to organize medical personnel to assist the USVI Department of Health’s COVID response. In May/June, 34 of our courageous medical volunteers set foot in St. Thomas and St. Croix hospitals and extended their support by taking on clinical shifts in the emergency room, med-surg, triage, and operating rooms.
In a kind gesture of appreciation, the Governor of the United States Virgin Islands commended IMANA for our help in minimizing the impact of COVID-19 on their citizens. We are thankful to our volunteers for stepping up in new and unprecedented ways under challenging circumstances to deliver quality healthcare on the frontlines. They have served not just in their home state but took time off their hectic schedule to help and bring comfort to the Islanders in need of support.
