About Direct Relief
Founded in 1948, Direct Relief is a humanitarian aid organization, active in all 50 US states and more than 90 countries, with a mission to improve the health and lives of people affected by poverty or emergencies—without regard to politics, religion, or ability to pay.
Since Ukraine was invaded on February 24, Direct Relief has deployed more than 300 tons of medical aid—including a wide range of medicine, equipment, and supplies, from emergency medical packs used by first responders in the field to critical care medicines administered in ICU settings—and distributed more than $13 million in emergency project grants to on-the-ground partners throughout the country and in neighboring states. Direct Relief is working directly with Ukraine’s Ministry of Health as well as hundreds of partners throughout the region and globally to meet immediate requests while simultaneously coordinating long-term assistance programs for people affected or displaced by the conflict.

Direct Relief ensures that 100% of contributions designated for Ukraine are spent fully to fund relief programs on the ground in Ukraine.
