One Hand Cannot Clap

Dr. Gloria Joseph has experienced a major health setback and was in hospice care at her home on St. Croix USVI. This fund is to help with the costs she has incurred. Every donation will greatly support Gloria and her partner Helga Emde who has for many weeks left her job to provide love, care, and attention.

Gloria has tirelessly given back to communities around the world, and now we would like to give back to her. You can help with a donation, no matter the amount, and by sharing the link so we can reach a larger audience.
