Durable Medical Equipment Arrives for U. S. Virgin Islands

Fifteen pallets of donated durable medical equipment – hospital beds, wheelchairs, shower chairs, walkers, canes, asthma pumps, CPAP machines and blood pressure monitors – have arrived on St. Croix.

Voluntary agencies, the USVI Long Term Recovery Groups and FEMA are working together to distribute the equipment to survivors who need it.

The Friends of Disabled Adults and Children (FODAC) donated the equipment. Good360.org and GotLift organized shipping to the territory. The St. Croix Christian Church paid for transportation of shipping the pallets from the port of Frederiksted to a FEMA warehouse.

Unlike many news organizations, we haven't put up a paywall - we want to keep our journalism as open as we can. Our sites are more popular than ever, but advertising revenues are falling - so you can see why we could use your help. Our independent journalism costs time, money and hard work to keep you informed, but we do it because we believe that it matters. If everybody who appreciates our reporting efforts were to help fund it for as little as $1, our future would be much more secure. Thanks in advance for your support!
