From the devastating earthquake in Haiti to the humanitarian crisis in Afghanistan, the news is full of people who are suffering. Here at InspireMore, we believe hope, light, and goodness can always be found, no matter how dire circumstances may seem. That’s where Direct Relief comes in!
Active in every state across the U.S. and in more than 80 countries, this humanitarian aid organization is stepping in for those who need them most. In their words, “Anytime. Anywhere. Anyone in need.”
When a major disaster is declared, they provide medical professionals with the resources they need to care for their neighbors; when the pandemic began, they immediately started delivering personal protective equipment to frontline workers, and they haven’t stopped since. They even brought Moderna’s COVID-19 vaccine to Mexico for the first time! Currently, they are on the ground in Haiti bringing medical support and relief to families who were affected by the 7.2-magnitude earthquake in August.
What really drew me to Direct Relief was the knowledge that all of my donations go straight to people in need. Not only that, but Forbes actually gave them a 100 percent efficiency rating and named them in the top 10 charities in the U.S. While I can’t alleviate everyone’s suffering personally, I know that every cent I send their way will support communities in crisis and bring light to their darkest hours.
