Last August, Eva and her family lost everything they had in an explosion at their building in Silver Spring, Maryland. Eva’s life as she knew it was changed forever: “I just remember waking up to a loud boom. I thought it was an earthquake but I looked at the corridor and saw fire. My only thought was to get my children to safety as fast as I could…”
The aftermath of the explosion was devastating for the health of Eva’s family. Often, a sudden illness, loss of employment and other unexpected circumstances affect our patients’ health in unimaginable ways.
Because of continued support from people like you, we were able to reach out to Eva and many others who were displaced by the explosion. The community rallied together as we collected clothes and pots, so they could start rebuilding their lives. Eva and her children received the best care and support to find joy in life once again.
Would you plant the seeds of hope to others?
No seed can grow on its own. Just as a seed relies on sun and water, we all rely on our family, our friends, and our community for support. Our patients count on YOU.
