How to Help People in Maui, Hawaii, Particularly Those with Kidney Diseases
ASN has partnered with Direct Relief—a nonprofit humanitarian aid organization that responds to natural disasters and other emergencies—to establish a fund to support the provision of medicines and supplies to people with kidney diseases, their families, and their caregivers (including nephrologists and other health professionals) affected by the devasting wildfires in Maui, Hawaii.
All donations will support Direct Relief's emergency response to the Maui crisis. ASN has contributed the first $10,000 to this fund, and we urge you to contribute as well.
Through its Emergency Partnership Initiative (EPI), ASN will continue to work with Direct Relief, the Kidney Community Emergency Response, and other stakeholders to help the people of Maui—particularly those with kidney diseases—however possible.
