The COVID-19 pandemic has created massive unbudgeted and unforeseen costs. Despite these added challenges, RAM continues provide free dental, medical, and vision care at our clinics. Please join RAM during this global holiday giving season, which launches on #GivingTuesday, December 1, and runs through the end of the year. We thank you for your support as we provide free, quality healthcare to those in need. Donate now and give the gift of #healthyholidays.
Lack of providers and facilities is a major issue for many remote and rural communities across the United States. The National Rural Health Association states that 25% of Americans live in rural areas, while only 10% of physicians work in rural areas. RAM only goes to communities in which it has been invited. Due to lack of funding, RAM cannot go to each community that requests it's services. Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, we have taken on $400,000 in unbudgeted costs thus far.
This project will put us closer to being able to go to every community that requests our services, further helping those in need of healthcare services.
This project could potentially fund more clinics, help us maintain equipment as well as purchase new equipment, and overall provide more healthcare services to those in our communities all over the country and internationally who need healthcare services.
