2022 AAH! health event: blood drive & cpr training 

Partnering with the American Red Cross, we held our annual blood drive. With 32 donors, the event can contribute to saving the lives of up to 96 people. Thank you to those who contributed to addressing today's significant blood supply shortage!

There is currently an extreme shortage of blood needed for lifesaving transfusions, and the Red Cross is crucial in solving this issue. Even one donation can save up to three lives. A blood transfusion is needed every two seconds, and there is never enough supply to meet demand.

NEW YORK CHAPTER HELPING IMMIGRANTS IN NEED!

By running an event in Flushing, New York, through the Minkwon Center, the New York AAH! chapter helped immigrants set up apps that make them aware of how prevalent COVID-19 is in their communities and connect to smart thermometers tracking their health. The members also helped guide those interested in resources such as a health insurance plan and food stamps.

This initiative is a part of our mission of helping those in need, such as immigrants.

NEW YORK CHAPTERs HELPING IMMIGRANT communities!

Five of our local chapters in New York volunteered at Randalls Island to help with lowering food prices for immigrant communities. They regularly took part in agricultural initiatives easing cost burdens on the community.
