Mission Statement

Direct Relief's mission is to provide appropriate ongoing assistance to health institutions and projects which serve the poor and victims of natural and civil disasters without regard to political affiliation, religious belief, ethnic identity or ability to pay.

Description

Founded a half-century ago and headquartered in Santa Barbara, California, Direct Relief is one of the oldest and most respected humanitarian organizations in the U.S., providing medical assistance to victims of poverty, natural disasters and civil unrest around the world and here at home. In 1999 we sent 239 shipments to 54 countries (including the U.S.), providing medical aid to an estimated 10 million people worldwide.
