Direct Relief Emergency Airlift to Provide 50 Tons of Essential Medications, Supplies to Philippines
Date:11/21/2013

sts for essential medications and medical supplies needed to provide health services across the affected local communities."

Across the island nation, health needs remain high. Having visited and assessed over a dozen provincial hospitals on three affected islands, the Direct Relief emergency response team on the ground in the Philippines reports that many health concerns remain, including: wounds and injuries, waterborne diseases, inadequate hygiene, communicable diseases spread by displacement and overcrowding (such as respiratory infections), malnutrition, and others.

The organization's private efforts in the country are being guided by close work and consultation with a broad consortium of private organizations, including the Asia America Initiative, the Philippine Red Cross, the IPI Foundation, and the U.S – Philippines Society to ensure proper coordination with the Government of the Philippines and its officials responsible for managing overall efforts.

The $150,000 in immediate cash grants were given to three highly respected Filipino partners on the ground to support their emergency relief operations, including: Asia America Initiative, the Zuellig Foundation, and the Philippine Disaster Recovery Foundation. The emergency cash grants allow these local groups to continue supporting families affected with basic needs such as nutritional support, clean water, and medical care

Direct Relief's emergency response team is working with senior Filipino officials, Filipino nongovernmental organizations (NGOs), and other NGOs to sort through logistics channels and roles among the numerous organizations involved in the response. As new information becomes available each day, the team is better able to assess health needs and tailor Direct Relief's ongoing response
