In the first four months of 2017, Direct Relief delivered $37.5 million worth of medicines and supplies to community clinics and health centers across the United States.

In 4,710 shipments, Direct Relief provided items donated from more than 50 healthcare manufacturing companies, including BD which provided needles and syringes -- items essential for people living with diabetes.

Other items provided to these safety net facilities for distribution to their low-income and uninsured patients included: Vaseline for dermatological care; hygiene kits; dental kits containing toothpaste, toothbrushes, floss, etc.; and Naloxone to reverse the effects of an opioid overdose.

Support from individuals such as you help Direct Relief enable this assistance. Thank you.
