Hurricane Patricia Update

NYCMedics works closely with the United Nations (UN) and governments of the affected host countries throughout every response. We have been engaged with the UN Office for the Coordination of Humanitarian Affairs (OCHA) since the onset of this impending disaster and have received consistent, real-time updates. In the most recent update, Mexican federal authorities reported they have things under control and have not requested international assistance.

While we will continue to monitor the situation and stay engaged with OCHA, NYCMedics will not respond at this time. We are relieved for Mexico and thankful of the outcome.

Donate Now

NYCM has put medical volunteers into the field to provide life saving medical care for approximately $80 a day.  This means that on average we can medically intervene in someones life for $4.  We think this is a remarkable number.  When you realize how important $4 can be, efficiency becomes a core value.

You can feel confident knowing that 90 cents of every dollar donated supports NYC Medics disaster relief and humanitarian aid programs.
