Earning his wings: 16-year-old pilot delivers donated medical supplies to Bath County hospital
T.J. Kim, a 16-year-old pilot delivered medical supplies to a rural county hospital. Kim dropped off a bundle of masks, respirators, and other medical supplies to Bath county community hospital. Kim has also made deliveries to other rural hospitals in Virginia. Kim says rural hospitals are often disadvantaged because people tend to donate to bigger hospitals.
Rural hospitals in Virginia received medical supplies during the covid-19 pandemic.
The action by Kim help reduce inequities in the medical supplies by focusing on rural hospitals which, he says are often disadvantaged.
