KANPNM will turn your donations into the supplies needed to assist people and clean-up efforts in the flood ravaged areas of Eastern Kentucky.
Impassible roads, lingering high water and damage to communications infrastructure is making it difficult to communicate with people inside the flooded areas. News reports quote Governor Beshear as saying that rescue crews have made more than 1,200 rescues from helicopters and boats. Weather forecasts predict more rain is expected in the coming days.
Many KANPNM members live in the affected counties and work at impacted clinics, health departments and hospitals. It is easy to imagine APRNs and their health care colleagues staying at work to care for those rescued from the flood while the rain falls and their own homes and loved ones are in danger.
Join our efforts to make sure these communities have the supplies they need to address the many needs and challenges of the coming days.
HOW YOU CAN HELP
Your donation using one of these KANPNM links will raise money that the Association will use to purchase and deliver the items that will assist in care and clean-up efforts. Thank you for your generous support!
