Worldwide Transitions Inc. – This organization helps patients needing continued healthcare, return safely back to their homeland. We have partnered with this organization so that we could provide healthcare support for those who find themselves stranded in an American hospital or healthcare facility with no resources to get home, or assistance in providing for their healthcare once they get home. Families or individuals from African countries should contact us and we will work within the US healthcare system to ensure that their loved one is safely accompanied home via air ambulance or commercial flight. We will also work to update the environment they are returning to so that their health challenges can be safely accommodated. Examples might be to build a room on to a family members home, or to dig a borehole (well) next to the family home, securing wheelchairs, bedding, or other healthcare supplies and support. If you have a need for a family members assistance in returning to their homeland, please write Judy at firstname.lastname@example.org.
