Metroid Marathon Prime is supporting Direct Relief!

Direct Relief is a humanitarian aid organization, active in all 50 states and more than 80 countries, with a mission to improve the health and lives of people affected by poverty or emergencies – without regard to politics, religion, or ability to pay.

Direct Relief has deployed more than 850 tons of medical aid and $14.7 million in financial assistance to Ukraine since the war broke out.

Additionally, Direct Relief has launched the Power for Health initiative to help ensure nonprofit community health centers and charitable clinics in the U.S. maintain power and remain operational through increasingly common power outages resulting from disasters and electrical grid failures.

By equipping health centers and clinics with clean, cost-effective, and reliable forms of power generation and storage, the program aims to achieve the following:

  • Prevent the loss of life due to health center closures during power outages
  • Enable quality and equitable healthcare services for the medically underserved, those living in communities with unreliable power, and those communities that suffer the worst impacts of disasters
  • Avoid financial losses to health centers from closures and spoiled medications and vaccines
