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. Logistics and transport partnership expands humanitarian aid worldwide Abbott DIRECT RELIEF PARTNER IN IMPROVING NUTRITION IN CAMBODIA With financial 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 photo: Daniel Rothenberg many suffer from specific micronutrient deficiencies. 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 Abbott- Mother and child at the Angkor Hospital for Children (AHC) in Cambodia donated nutritional and rehydration products to complement the nutrition program, as well as anti-infective agents and other pharmaceuticals specifically requested by the hospital. Santa Barbara Wine Community CONTRIBUTED OVER $1.47 MILLION SINCE 2000 Since 2000, the Santa Barbara Vintners’ Foundation has held a biennial wine auction to benefit 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 benefited 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.
