Please consider a donation in support of Direct Relief's efforts to deliver essential medical aid to communities devastated by Superstorm Sandy. 100% of your contribution will send necessary medicines, supplies and equipment to nonprofit clinics and health centers located in the storm's path, and will help thousands of people receive appropriate health care in hard hit areas.
Direct Relief is the only nonprofit organization in the United States licensed to distribute prescription medications in all 50 states and works with over 1,000 nonprofit health clinics nationwide – including over 350 in Sandy-affected states – providing free medications and supplies for low-income uninsured patients at the facilities on an ongoing basis and, as now, in response to emergencies.
Direct Relief has committed an initial $1 million in cash and $25 million in available pharmaceutical and material products to Sandy relief and recovery.
Every dollar matters!
Your contribution will support a targeted, effective emergency response, and will help those who are particularly vulnerable during times of disaster: young children, the elderly, low-income families, and those with health risks or special medical needs.
