Help keep Hospitals and ERs available for treating COVID-19
As the number of corona virus cases are surging exponentially around our country, smaller non-profit clinics and other organizations are facing increased challenges on their budgets. These organizations play a vital role in providing access to health care for low income and uninsured patients who otherwise might need to go to emergency rooms for care.
One challenge is to keep the nurses, doctors, and volunteers safe. There is an urgent need to procure masks, gloves, wipes and other protective equipment. Helping keep frontline workers safe ensures that the clinics can stay open and continue providing care to the low income patients. This can help free up Emergency Rooms for treating more sick COVID-19 patients.
Another challenge is that there is a real possibility that the patient numbers will surge at the smaller non-profit clinics. As more businesses are closing and jobs are lost, the number of unemployed and those without insurance is increasing and there will be more need for these services.
Keeping vital health care accessible to low-income patients
Healthcare workers rely on personal protective equipment to keep themselves and their patients from being infected. Providing assistance in buying protective equipment and sanitizing supplies can help keep the front line workers safe and the smaller healthcare organizations and non-profit clinics running. This can help manage some of the load on hospitals and ERs for treating sick coronovirus patients.
These organizations play a vital role in providing vital primary care for the low-income and uninsured. They will need aid to cotinue delivering quality health care for the increased number of people who will be without jobs due to the conronavirus crisis we are currently experiencing.
By donating $25, you can help a person in need
Your donation will help healthcare frontline workers and organizations in the battle against the Coronavirus Pandemic. EkamUSA will identify and work with trusted local non-profit clinics and other 501(c)3 and similar organizations in Texas that provide healthcare and assistance for the low income and uninsured population, such as Pediplace in Dallas (which is the largest non-profit clinic in North Texas that provides health care for about 5000 uninsured kids every year).

This displays the maximum incremental additional funding the campaign could receive (Maximum Funding Amount (MFA) less Minimum Funding Goal)). For example, if the MFA is $100,000 and the MFG $10,000, it would show the difference of $90,000 here.
