Disaster Response Hold
Direct Relief's mission is to improve the health and lives of people affected by poverty and emergencies. In 2017 alone, Unite to Light supplied over 5,500 solar lights to Direct Relief for distribution in places such as Puerto Rico, Peru and Somaliland. These lights are going to first responders, neighborhood clinics, victims of natural disasters, and midwives. Working with Direct Relief ensures that the solar lights get to people who need them most.
In preparation for 2018, we are giving 1,000 solar lights to Direct Relief for them to place in their "Disaster Response Hold" so that when a disaster happens, they have the lights in their warehouse and can deploy quickly and effectively.
All donations on this page will go to fund the lights in that Hold. When a specific disaster happens, we will update this page to reflect the need. For now, we are aiming to equip Direct Relief so they can do what they do best: help people across the world.
