“With a partnership with this non-profit, we have eliminated $2.2 million in medical debt in Bloomington, Indiana,” said City Church pastor David Norris.
His wife and fellow pastor, Sumer Norris, said people were “overjoyed” when they were told about the plan to erase their crushing medical debts.
“It’s all part of a partnership where the church puts up an amount less than the $2.2 million in debt along with RIP Medical Debt Relief and the collection agencies accept it,” according to WTHR.
The non-profit organization’s website stated that its “mission is to empower donors to forgive the billions in oppressive medical debt at pennies on the dollar.”
“You may know about our efforts to give furniture, clothing and food to those in need through our Healing Hands Outreach, but we recently partnered with RIP Medical Debt to help purchase 2.2 million dollars in medical debt for Monroe County residents,” the post read.
