SOS In Our Community
As the Justice for Breonna Taylor demonstrations wind down and our city moves forward, SOS continues our commitment to health equity in our city. This week SOS donated thousands of gloves, aprons and face shields to the McAtee Community Kitchen. These donated items will save the organization thousands of dollars that will instead be spent on serving the community. Health equity means not only access to medical care and education but also access to healthy food. SOS enhances every aspect of health equity with our supplies and decades of experience in community building.

SOS Around the World
Achieving social justice and health equity can take a variety of paths. While SOS is standing up for social justice in our community, our global humanitarian aid creates access to medical care in regions that have been historically brutalized and left behind. What’s better than creating access is creating sustainability. This month SOS delivered a third shipment in three years to the small island country of St. Vincent & the Grenadines. Working with Louisville’s Father Ron Knott and SVG’s Ministry of Health, SOS has regularly provided supplies to the two hospitals on the island as well as delivering items for schools and an orphanage. Last year, members of the SOS team and long-time volunteers visited the island to see our supplies having an immediate and dramatic impact. Like health equity in our own city, when people are empowered with equal access to resources, hope blooms and the future changes.
