DRI, a nonprofit organization that focuses on disaster response, has it’s head quarters here in SB. I volunteer for this organization and this week to raise money we did our annual flower drive. For this I went around with a friend and delivered people’s pre ordered flowers as a donation to DRI.
The video above gives insight on the goals and purposes for DRI. It’s nice to be able to do small tasks for an organization that makes huge changes out of what I am able to do.
I’ve been on a tour of the DRI Warehouse where they keep all of their supplies that need to be ready to sent at a moments notice for disaster aid.
Probably the main thing direct relief provides is medical care where it would usually be unavailable in underdeveloped countries. Vaccines along with the proper equipment for childbirth are vital to these people.
