The Kentucky Primary Care Association established a fund for donations to eastern Kentucky flood victims.
The association comprises community health centers, rural health clinics, primary care centers, and all other organizations and individuals concerned about access to health care services for the state’s under-served rural and urban populations.
“KPCA is committed to helping our members in the region, and their patients, recover,” said Molly Lewis, interim chief executive officer at KPCA. “This relief fund is one of the many ways KPCA is taking immediate action to help.”
All donations to Kentucky Rural Health Collaborative will provide relief to Community Health Centers and Rural Health Clinics in the flooded region. The donations will help those safety net providers who are KPCA members and support the needs of healthcare workers and providers in communities hard-hit by flooding.
“Several truckloads of relief supplies have already been delivered to them, more are on the way, and we’re just getting started,” Lewis said. “Donations to our Kentucky Rural Health Collaborative will help ensure residents have access to the essential health services provided by our CHC and RHC members. Please make a donation to help our safety net providers today.”
