"It’s crucial to separate purpose from function. For example, Costco doesn’t exist to improve the health of impoverished communities, but it sure knows something about distribution—a function that’s central to what Direct Relief does. Google’s primary purpose isn’t to raise philanthropic contributions online, but it definitely has a lot to impart to an organization about how to connect efficiently and effectively with potential supporters. And FedEx wasn’t founded to get medical supplies into crisis areas, but it knows an awful lot about optimizing logistics."

Every day, Direct Relief is monitoring, assessing and responding to natural disasters throughout the world. Sometimes, these emergencies hit close to home.

A wildfire broke out in Santa Barbara County yesterday, ten miles from Direct Relief’s global headquarters. Overnight, the Sherpa Fire spread to more than 1,200 acres and is zero percent contained, prompting mandatory evacuations throughout the county.

The International Federation of Gynecology and Obstetrics (FIGO) and Direct Relief have signed an agreement to expand and enhance the care provided to women receiving surgical repair for obstetric fistula, a devastating birth injury that occurs overwhelmingly in developing countries and typically leaves women socially ostracized and destitute in addition to physically injured.

A minimal amount of research on the work of Direct Relief would be sufficient to comprehend why exactly the organization truly does "deliver a world of good". The four star rating by Charity Navigator and 100% efficiency proclaimed by Forbes clearly define the wonderful and successful work of this organization; however, it was not until I worked as an intern there over this summer that I learned the extent to which Direct Relief will go to ensure they are helping the most amount of people possible. The staff and board members are extremely friendly, dedicated and passionate about their work, which is reflected in the organization's efficiency and transparency. The internship was not only an extremely fulfilling work-experience, but it has set a personal standard for how I would like (and expect) all charities to function. Direct Relief is a one-of-a-kind organization, which deserves publicity and support in order to assist it in its exemplary, continuously expanding mission.
