PROVIDENCE — At first they wanted to send a plane with medical supplies to India. The doctors and other staffers at Care New England in Rhode Island were watching in horror as India suffered one of the world’s worst coronavirus crises, a few months after Rhode Island had that distinction.
The outpouring of supplies and money was so swift, though, that one plane became two. Then two became three. Then three became four, with the last of the supplies organized in pallets Tuesday evening and loaded onto a truck Wednesday morning.
