Direct Relief International works to improve the health and lives of people living in developing countries and people victimized by disaster or war. DRI supports locally-run facilities, hospitals, and programs that provide health services. DRI provides these facilities with medicines, vitamins, supplies and equipment that DRI receives through donations.
Direct Relief International ensures that materials are delivered in the most secure, most efficient manner possible by coordinating with local organizations and other international relief organizations. Direct Relief provides materials based on the specific requests of partner organizations, all of which demonstrate the capacity, commitment, and credibility to provide the health services required by victims of disaster in their area.
