PVBLIC Foundation, Partners Launch ExtraMyle and Care to Connect NYC Programs for New Yorkers in Need



NEW YORK - May 22, 2020 - (Newswire.com)

PVBLIC Foundation in partnership with Myle Technologies and New York City Health and Human Services launched ExtraMyle and the Care to Connect NYC programs to provide solutions to support the City of New York’s need for resources and solutions.

The partnership is operating with connected taxi and for-hire licensed driver workforce to assist as the backbone to all programs allowing New York drivers to earn a living while the lockdown continues. All of these solutions are at no cost to New York City health services or those benefiting from the services, as they are financed by MYLE Technologies and PVBLIC Foundation.

Over the past two months the partnership has been transporting COVID-19 positive patients to life-saving therapies and procedures safely without risking lives or further spreading the virus. Additionally the initiative has been delivering donated medical supplies from fellow New Yorkers to those on the front lines of this pandemic – hospital staff and health care workers. 

In addition to transporting NYC’s most vulnerable, the ExraMyle program is also supporting the Care to Connect NYC platform that is collecting all types of unused smart devices; smartphones, tablets and accessories.

The smart devices are used to provide assistance and communication to COVID-19 patients, with the goal to help those in need stay connected. When faced with a life-threatening illness, virtual emotional support and access to programs that can help patients manage their life can reduce mental stress.

“To those in need, NYC’s most vulnerable, the unused smartphones and tablets can be a window to the world; a support network, lifeline, safe place to keep patients informed and connected,” said Sergio Fernandez de Cordova, Chairman, PVBLIC Foundation. 

Donated items will be used by COVID-19 patients at Javits New York Medical Shelter, Billie Jean King Tennis Stadium and other alternate care sites around New York City. These smart devices will allow patients to call family members, observe virtual religious services and access City resources like Access NYC and telehealth apps – including behavioral health and relaxation apps as options.

“We decided to partner with PVBLIC the PVBLIC Foundation and donated our technology and our taxi fleet, as resources, to service this program by managing device pickups and medical supplies and delivering them to local residents of New York’s five boroughs,” stated Aleksey Medvedovskiy, CEO of Myle Technologies.

Jun 5, 2020

MOSCOW — President Vladimir Putin engineered a surprise shakeup of Russia's leadership Wednesday, proposing changes to the constitution that could keep him in power well past the end of his term in 2024.

Putin’s proposed constitutional reforms, announced...

Sultan Qaboos bin Said, who modernized Oman, dies at 79

Jun 5, 2020

DUBAI, United Arab Emirates — Oman’s Sultan Qaboos bin Said, the Mideast's longest-ruling monarch who seized power in a 1970 palace coup and pulled his Arabian sultanate into modernity while carefully balancing diplomatic ties between adversaries Iran and the U.S., has died. He was 79. The British-educated, reclusive sultan reformed a nation that was home to only three schools and harsh laws banning electricity, radios, eyeglasses and even umbrellas when he took the throne. Under his reign, Oman became known as a welcoming tourist destination and a key Mideast interlocutor, helping the U.S. free captives in Iran and Yemen and...

On streets of Tehran, relief for now at no wider conflict

Jun 5, 2020

TEHRAN, Iran — Iranian newspapers proclaimed the country's attack on U.S. forces in Iraq to be "a dark night for Americans," and Washington's "first admission of failure in history." On the bustling streets of Tehran, however, there was relief Thursday that neither side appeared primed for war. “War is not something like the ‘Call of Duty’ game," said Dara Shojaei, a 23-year-old architecture student. “It's not a game you can play to win. There's no winner.” But with the relief came some mixed feelings about how far Iran should go to avenge the killing of Revolutionary Guard Gen. Qassem Soleiman,...

NEW YORK — U.S stocks climbed in morning trading on Thursday as investors cheered confirmation from China that its top trade official will head to Washington next week to sign a preliminary trade deal. The “Phase 1” accord is the opening step on a possible path toward a broader agreement between the nations. President Donald Trump has said he will travel to Beijing after the initial signing to start the second stage of talks. Every major index is on track for a record as Wall Street distances itself from a bout of anxiety over the last week because of tensions...

Soleimani, a general who became Iran icon by targeting US

Jun 5, 2020

TEHRAN, Iran — For Iranians whose icons since the Islamic Revolution have been stern-faced clergy, Maj. Gen. Qassem Soleimani widely represented a figure of national resilience in the face of four decades of U.S. pressure. For the U.S. and Israel, he was a shadowy figure in command of Iran's proxy forces, responsible for fighters in Syria backing President Bashar Assad and for the deaths of American troops in Iraq. Solemani survived the horror of Iran’s long war in the 1980s with Iraq to take control of the Revolutionary Guard’s elite Quds Force, responsible for the Islamic Republic’s foreign campaigns. Relatively...
