named Direct Relief the

“Biggest Mover” of 2006,

as the organization moved

from number 100 to 53 in

this year’s “NPT 100”

charity rankings.

ACCOUNTABILITY

Consumers Digest

ranked Direct Relief the

eighth most effi cient

charity in America, with

a program spending

effi ciency of 99.1

percent. Direct Relief

also ranked 13th

overall in the cost

to raise $100.

STRICT BOARD OVERSIGHT AND GOVERNANCE: Direct Relief’s

operations are conducted in conformance with an annual operating

budget that is vetted and approved by its 35-member Board of Directors,

which includes several former and current top executives of leading

U.S. and international companies with over 150 collective years in

the investment business, three physicians, three PhDs, and three

accomplished attorneys.

TRANSPARENCY: Direct Relief pioneered open Shareholders’ Meetings

for all its “investors” (every individual, company, or organization that

has contributed money, material, or time to Direct Relief) to brief them

on how their investments were spent. The organization held its fourth

annual meeting this year which was covered by the New York Times.

INDEPENDENT AUDIT: An audit committee, comprised of both non-

Director and Director members, retains and meets with an independent

public accounting fi rm that conducts the annual audit. The committee

also meets with the auditor, independent of any staff including the

CEO and CFO, to discuss fi ndings. The Board’s Executive and Finance

Committees meet monthly to review performance against budget and

conduct general oversight.

STAFF COMPENSATION: The compensation of all Direct Relief staff

members is benchmarked each year against a survey of nonprofi t

compensation levels throughout Southern California, similar nonprofi t

organizations nationwide, and publicly available compensation data.

The CEO’s performance and compensation are reviewed annually by the

Board of Director’s compensation committee.

BOARD LEADERSHIP – PERSONAL FINANCIAL INVESTMENT: In fi scal

year 2006, the volunteer Board of Directors and International Advisory

Board personally contributed enough to cover a signifi cant part of the

fundraising and administrative costs of the organization.

BOARD LEADERSHIP – FUTURE FINANCIAL SECURITY: The Board has

created a Board Restricted Investment Fund to ensure the organization’s

future fi nancial security. With a goal of obtaining and maintaining two

years’ operating expenses, the Fund is intended to balance current

and future needs and provide annual support for operations, but not

permanently restrict funds that may be required to provide humanitarian

assistance.

THE IMPORTANCE OF YEAR-END DONATIONS: Direct Relief typically

receives more than one-third of its total contributions in the fi nal eight

weeks of the calendar year. Operating at a defi cit for 50 weeks per year,

the organization relies heavily on year-end contributions to meet annual

operating expenses.

IN IMPROVING NUTRITION IN CAMBODIA

With fi nancial and material assistance from Abbott, Direct Relief and Angkor

Hospital for Children (AHC) in Cambodia are collaborating on a year-long

nutrition education and support program. The partnership addresses the high

incidence of pediatric malnutrition and will improve the health of thousands

of Cambodian children and their families.

In Cambodia, malnutrition is a major contributor to early childhood

mortality and is associated with more than half of all childhood deaths.

Approximately 45 percent of children in Cambodia are underweight, and

many suffer from specifi c micronutrient defi ciencies. The Abbott-funded

nutrition program uses a multi-pronged approach to nutrition education

through a team of nutrition education nurses, a demonstration cook, and

a gardener. General principles of nutrition, healthy cooking, and growing

nutritious plants are all emphasized in this innovative program designed for

patients and their families.

Since 2003, Direct Relief has provided over $10 million dollars of medical

material support to AHC. The most recent assistance included Abbottdonated

nutritional and rehydration products to complement the nutrition

program, as well as anti-infective agents and other pharmaceuticals

specifi cally requested by the hospital.

ENHANCING DISASTER

PREPAREDNESS CAPACITY IN CALIFORNIA

Direct Relief and FedEx are helping prepare California’s safety-net clinic system for

natural or medical disasters through a statewide telemedicine system with the California

Primary Care Association (CPCA). The CPCA will use the system to develop statewide

emergency video conferencing communications, utilizing CPCA regional clinic groups

as points of access. This will allow clinics and health centers throughout the state to

support their colleagues in the event of a natural disaster or disease outbreak. For 15

years, FedEx has provided Direct Relief free transportation and logistical services to

assist people worldwide.

Since 2000, the Santa Barbara Vintners’ Foundation has held a biennial wine auction to benefi t Direct Relief.

The auction has presented the opportunity for one of the region’s fastest growing industries, which is gaining

international notoriety for its wines, to rally together to put the “fruits of their success” toward a greater good.

The Vintners look for perfect pairings in food and wines, and recognize a similar goal with Direct Relief, who

looks for these pairings with health partners worldwide, providing them with the tools and materials they need

in the places that need them the most. The Vintners’ auctions have raised over $1,020,000, which leveraged with

Direct Relief’s unique ability to stretch donated dollars, has furnished over $30.6 million in medical material aid

provided to those in need.

Direct Relief has also benefi ted from a winemaker dinner series that was the brain child of two of its board

members, Phil Battaglia and Kate Firestone. The series, in its fourth year, provides the opportunity to introduce

Direct Relief to new supporters in an elegant, yet casual and enjoyable environment. These events have raised

over $450,000 for Direct Relief. It is an honor for Direct Relief to receive the generous support of the Santa

Barbara County wine community.

Global Health Problems,

Local Solutions.

1. our approach:

Direct Relief is nonsectarian and privately fi nanced. Our medical

assistance programs equip health professionals working in resourcepoor

communities to better meet the challenges of diagnosing,

treating, and caring for people without regard to politics, religion,

gender, race, or ability to pay.

2. our partners:

Direct Relief’s network of partners includes more than 300

healthcare facilities and organizations located in over 60 countries.

Partner facilities range from small rural outposts to large hospitals

serving thousands each day.

3. how we select partners:

Partner institutions and organizations are selected through a

rigorous qualifi cation process. The selection criteria include the

extent of poverty and disease burden in the region, the knowledge

and skill of the healthcare providers, and the quality of the services

provided. Priority is given to facilities focusing on HIV/AIDS and

providing educational and preventive services to mothers and children.

4. how we help:

Direct Relief provides medicines, nutritional supplements, medical

supplies, and equipment to approved partners. By encouraging

healthcare companies to donate appropriate products, Direct Relief

furnishes items specifi cally requested by facilities’ medical staffs.

In the fi rst ten months of 2006, Direct Relief has provided aid to

over 25 million people through 564 shipments. Direct Relief’s

professional staff includes a Chief Medical Offi cer and two

pharmacists, who review requests from partners to ensure that all

medical donations are appropriate for the level and type of healthcare

services being provided.

5. why it matters:

Health has intrinsic value for every person, but it is also essential for

people to learn, work, and make a living. In developing countries,

fi nancing health services is extremely diffi cult. The trained health

professionals in medically underserved communities represent the

most important part of the healthcare infrastructure. Direct Relief’s

support enables them to stay productively engaged so their patients

can receive needed care.

6. shared investment and self-help:

To ensure a shared stake in the assistance provided, Direct Relief

requests that each partner assume responsibility for a portion of the

port charges and the in-country transportation costs from port-ofentry

to destination.

7. leading companies trust us:

Direct Relief works closely with the philanthropic initiatives of

dozens of healthcare companies, including Johnson & Johnson,

Merck, Pfi zer, Abbott, BD, Bristol- Myers Squibb, GlaxoSmithKline,

and MidMark Corporation. For a complete list of our medical product

donors, see page 7.

8. our experience and qualifi cations:

Direct Relief’s programmatic approach has been refi ned by 58 years

of experience. We are a licensed wholesale pharmacy, and our staff

has vast experience in international health and development. Visit

our web site to see a complete list of our credentials and

qualifi cations (www.DirectRelief.org).

HELPING PEOPLE WHO NEED A SAFETY NET

Direct Relief’s U.S. safety-net clinic support program has provided

needed medicines to working poor and fi xed-income persons who are

uninsured and would otherwise go without care, or pay high, nonnegotiated

rates for their prescriptions.

The program has strengthened the donation supply lines to low-income,

uninsured patients in need of prescription medicines by targeting

qualifi ed free clinics and community health centers. These are essential

pieces of the healthcare safety-net for the more than 46 million people in

the United States who are uninsured.

Since the inception

of the domestic clinic

support program in

2003, Direct Relief has

provided $42.1 million

(wholesale) of medicines

and supplies. Direct

Relief’s domestic partner

network now includes

over 150 clinics located

throughout California

and the Gulf States.

Direct Relief’s expansive

efforts to support clinics

serving hurricaneaffected

patients in

the Gulf grew out of

our statewide efforts

in California over the

previous two years.

As Hurricanes Katrina

essential medicines to community and free clinics

throughout California.

and Rita illustrated, these clinics also serve as natural and essential

components of an emergency medical response.

Direct Relief has been licensed by the California Board of Pharmacy

for 45 years and recently became a licensed pharmacy distributor and

wholesaler in Alabama, Louisiana, Mississippi, New York, and Texas.

These licenses allow Direct Relief to assist resource-strapped clinics and

develop effi cient channels for emergency response.

PREVENTING CHILDHOOD BLINDNESS IN EL SALVADOR

Direct Relief has collaborated with Leiner Health

Products, the largest private label vitamin manufacturer

in the U.S., to provide high-dose capsules of vitamin

A over a three-year period to El Salvador’s FUDEM

to distribute through its clinic system in the country’s

poorest regions. FUDEM, which provides visual

screenings for 63,000 El Salvadoran children, will

administer the capsules to patients once every six months

for three years.

According to a USAID-funded

national survey, one out of every

three children under fi ve years of age

in El Salvador is vitamin A defi cient.

Vitamin A Defi ciency (VAD) is the

most common cause of preventable

blindness in children worldwide and

leads to increased morbidity and risk

of mortality.

The Women for Direct Relief,

a support group comprised of

community member supporters and

members of the Direct Relief board

of directors, embarked on a trip to El

Salvador to help distribute the vitamin

A capsules to children in rural areas.

During three days of a mobile medical

and visual campaign visiting three

different towns, nearly 1,700 people

of all ages received eye screenings and examinations. If

diagnosed with poor sight, either a new pair of glasses

were provided on the spot (447 received reading glasses,

141 prescription glasses) or an appointment for followup

service was scheduled. In addition, each child from

six months to fi ve years of age received a high-dose

vitamin A capsule, as well as a tablet of the antiworm

medication albendazole.

In the last ten years, medical technology company BD

(Becton Dickinson) and Direct Relief have had a successful

relationship helping people in developing countries

and disaster-ravaged areas by supplying and delivering

specifi cally-requested medical supplies to medically

underserved communities. In 2007, BD employees will

get a chance to experience the challenges and successes

of Direct Relief’s partners in Ghana fi rst-hand.

Working side by side with clinic staff from Maranatha

Maternity Clinic and Motoka Clinic, volunteers from

BD will play a direct role in the positive health outcomes

of women and children in Ghana. From upgrading lab

facilities to helping construct a clinic in a rural village,

they will immerse themselves in the daily realities of

Direct Relief’s partner organizations and return home

with a new appreciation of the public health system and

struggles in Ghana and the developing world.

Located in West Africa, Ghana has a population of over

22 million, with a life expectancy at birth of 49 years of

age and child mortality at approximately 112 per 1,000

births (WHO). Although the Ghanaian government has

worked to build and stock health facilities throughout

the country, the most rural communities have virtually

no medical care, and people must travel several hours

to reach the nearest health provider. This unique

partnership between BD and Direct Relief will bring

sorely needed medical equipment and supplies to rural

Ghana, while also upgrading these two specifi c facilities

to become major medical centers in the region.

6 INDEPENDENT ADVERTISING INSERT EMERGENCY RESPONSE NOVEMBER 23, 2006 www.DirectRelief.org

DISASTER RELIEF AND EMERGENCY ASSISTANCE

The same programmatic standards apply whether providing ongoing assistance or disaster relief – we must know

specifi cally what is required, who is responsible, how the material will be used, and whether there is a secure

logistics channel. Following these principles, in 2006, Direct Relief responded to fi ve disasters around the globe.

HURRICANES KATRINA AND RITA

Furnished $31 million in post-hurricane assistance to the

Gulf Coast, composed of $26.8 million in medical material

aid and $4.27 million of targeted fi nancial resources to

rebuild the health infrastructure

Direct Relief’s support efforts have been aimed at both the major anchor

facilities that provide specialized services and the network of safety-net

clinics that play the key role in caring for people who have little money

and no insurance.

Direct Relief continues to support the Gulf Coast region. Recently, the Capitol

City Family Health Center (CCFHC) in Baton Rouge received $106,716 to

support their community health center. CCFHC provides preventative and

primary care to residents living in medically underserved communities in

the city of Baton Rouge and East Baton Rouge Parish. In the aftermath of

Hurricane Katrina, CCFHC provided medical and dental services for more

than 800 hurricane evacuees, of which 74 percent were uninsured.

The fi nancial assistance will cover comprehensive medical and dental

visits for 264 patients over a one year period, including medical and

diagnostic equipment, supplies, laboratory fees, and the yearly salaries for

a case manager and a consultant who will coordinate outreach efforts to

hurricane evacuees that remain in FEMA trailer parks.

PAKISTAN EARTHQUAKE

Furnished $8.7 million in medical assistance to the region

while providing 1.5 million courses of treatment

Nearly 60 years of disaster response experience has taught Direct Relief

that traumatic injuries caused by earthquakes require extensive long-term

care and rehabilitation. In recognition of this, Direct Relief has focused its

available fi nancial support for the Pakistan earthquake on organizations,

facilities, and programs involved in rehabilitative medicine – ranging from

prosthetics to physical and occupational therapy.

Direct Relief fi nanced one of fi ve prosthetic centers for the Pakistan

Institute of Prosthetic and Orthotic Sciences (PIPOS) for two years,

covering everything from salaries to the materials used to create new

prosthetic limbs for injured patients. PIPOS is the eminent amputee

hospital in the country and provides new artifi cial limbs for patients at its

fi ve clinic sites. In the aftermath of the earthquake, PIPOS has been the

only prosthetic and orthotic organization to keep its doors open.

Direct Relief’s tsunami response efforts, consistent with the organization’s

overall philosophy, helped to strengthen and rebuild the local health

infrastructure. During the last two years, the results of Direct Relief’s

tsunami-response efforts include:

• To strengthen local health infrastructure, Direct Relief funded the

construction and rehabilitation of 52 community clinics and

hospitals in India, Indonesia, and Sri Lanka;

• To reach displaced and remote populations, Direct Relief purchased

13 ambulances, 4 mobile medical units with diagnostic capacity,

and 18 medical support vehicles for India, Indonesia, and Sri Lanka;

• To provide safe drinking water and prevent spread of communicable

diseases, Direct Relief funded construction of 627 water wells, 871

toilets, and the cleaning of 5,303 wells of debris and salt water in

Sri Lanka and Indonesia. Displaced children in a refugee camp in Muzaffarabad, Pakistan soon after the

you’ve made a generous donation in their honor. These cards are

also available for purchase if you would like to use them for the

holidays.

to provide a full course of medical treatment for approximately

100 people.
