The year 2020 has tested the bonds of our families and communities in uniquely challenging ways. COVID turned our lives upside down and forced us to find creative new approaches to serve a growing number of our neighbors who are struggling financially, physically and emotionally. Despite all the obstacles the pandemic presented, INMED USA never missed a beat in helping families bridge the gaps for today and build bridges to self-reliance in the future. And at every step of the way, generous neighbors have lent a helping hand to provide the resources and encouragement necessary for us to get through this crisis together. As welcome to close this year, we would like to share and celebrate the work of some of these selfless volunteers.
