With Puerto Rico’s devastation still impacting so many of the island’s residents, it gave us great satisfaction to be able to provide 100 battery-operated nebulizers (pictured here) for kids and adults who have been identified by medical personnel as asthma (or other respiratory illness) patients. The units were purchased here from a very generous supplier who offered a significant discount, and were flown by private jet to the island where our contact, David Solomiany from the Jewish community, delivered them to the city of Loiza.
With so much of the island still without electricity it is not just refrigeration and other basic needs that are impacted. For some, the simple act of breathing is imperiled, as well. These nebulizers have truly brought a breath of fresh air to many people impacted by health issues.
