FedEx and Direct Relief (formerly Direct Relief International) have a relationship that goes back more than 20 years. From Hurricanes Katrina and Rita in 2005, to numerous tsunamis and floods in Asia, to the earthquake in Haiti in 2010; FedEx has worked closely with Direct Relief to deliver much-needed aid to disaster-affected areas both domestically and abroad.

Earlier this month I participated in the Partners for Quality Medical Donations (PQMD) conference sponsored by FedEx and hosted by Direct Relief. Direct Relief is one of four major relief organizations with which FedEx works year round. They are the only NGO licensed to distribute pharmaceuticals in all 50 US States. Pharmaceutical companies donate product to them and they use the products to help a network of more than a thousand health clinics serve disadvantaged people across the US. They also provide medicines and medical supplies to NGOs around the world.
