Louisiana flooding devastates pregnancy care center

Entire neighborhoods have been flooded

Care Pregnancy Clinic in Baton Rouge, LA is a medically staffed pro-life pregnancy resource center. It provides pregnancy testing, ultrasounds, housing assistance, counseling, maternity and baby supplies, and other services to thousands of vulnerable families.

And it has fallen victim to massive flooding in southern Louisiana. (Don't feel bad if you haven't heard about this; the media coverage has been dismal.)

Care Pregnancy Clinic writes:
The recent unprecedented flooding of Baton Rouge, LA devastated the ability of the Care Pregnancy Clinic to continue to serve the mothers and babies in our community! The abortion clinic is open now and we are getting calls.
We need an RV so we can start serving now! If you are able to loan or donate an RV, we can begin saving babies immediately! 
Over 128,000 clients, with their babies, 256,000 have been served since 1980. We have been privileged to provide to our clients: ultrasound, pregnancy testing, medical consultations with physicians’ pregnancy verification, STD/STI testing, abortion reversal, home visits, education in nutrition, breast feeding, childbirth and parenting all at no cost to our clients. The babies’ mothers receive baby essentials, baby food, formula, diapers, baby clothes, maternity clothes, cribs, car seats, and other baby items. This baby boutique was damaged as well and will need to be replaced.
The Care Pregnancy Clinic sustained substantial damage in the latest flooding in the 2016 Historic Flood. We estimate $425,000 is needed to make all the necessary repairs. All three ultrasound machines were damaged and need to be replaced, dry wall stripped, etc. The building needs repairs and all office electronic equipment must be replaced. No life-saving donation is too large or too small. We are a 501(c)3 charitable organization.
I cannot begin imagine the emotional roller coaster of fear over an unexpected pregnancy, relief at receiving help from the pregnancy center, and then suddenly losing both your house and the pregnancy center support system you've counted on. Please donate here as you are able. And if by some chance you can spare an RV, call 225-266-7075.
