Direct Relief Sending Supplies To Louisiana

Direct Relief has offered assistance to about 40 Louisiana health centers and clinics since epic rain fell.

The flooding has been deadly and many people are in need of medicine and medical care.

The non profit has been responding to flooding in the region since hurricane Katrina more than a decade ago.

Crews filled backpacks with medical supplies at their Goleta headquarters on Monday.

Some call centers asked for specific medical items.
