Community Outreach

Life Luxe Gives and Morehouse School of Medicine are pleased to Partner with the Letty Coppel Foundation and the Amigos de los Ninos to provide much needed medical supports in one of the areas hit hardest by Tropical Storm Lidia. Millions of people were impacted and thousands devasted by the storm which left 20 people dead.

Several areas are still trying to recover from the tragic event and are in need of medical assistance. Through our local Partnerships we plan to bring several medical professionals to one of the barrios to do medical assessments and screenings.

More details of the off-site outreach program are developing. Medical professionals will be able to register to participate. Space is limited.
