2023/ As a Public Benefit Company, serving the greater good is rooted in our DNA, and giving back is why we exist. That’s why we’re so excited to announce that in 2023, we’re setting our biggest donation goal yet to deliver 3 million servings of DripDrop worldwide.



Hurricane Idalia made landfall in Florida as a Category 3 storm and unleashed devastation along a wide stretch of the Gulf Coast. Many were without power and left with the aftermath of extreme flooding and widespread damage. The National Weather Service in Tallahassee called Idalia “an unprecedented event” since no major hurricanes on record have ever passed through the bay abutting the Big Bend.

Our partner, Global Empowerment Mission, who is based in Miami, FL responded in advance, preparing 6 trucks filled with Family Necessity Kits to ensure they could provide support to those impacted immediately. DripDrop was proud to be a part of their response, providing access to fast rehydration to both those affected by Hurricane Idalia as well as the response workers. GEM has committed $5 million in aid and supplies.

Maui, Hawaii


Several wildfires caused devastation across parts of Hawaii in August, fueled in part by dry conditions coupled with strong winds from Hurricane Dora passing to the south. The Maui Emergency Management Agency estimates that it will cost $5.52 billion to rebuild in Maui County. With thousands of residents displaced in the aftermath, many are left without everyday essentials and are in need of resources.

DripDrop’s trusted partners all responded immediately to help those in need. Global Empowerment Mission opened a Maui office, which is open to assist with long-term housing applications, BStrong cash assistance cards, and other supplies. Heart to Heart International sent medical supplies along with hygiene kits to be distributed to shelters and hotel housing. And in partnership with Baby2Baby, DripDrop was able to provide 130k servings to help with their response efforts as they get basic essentials to families with children who need them most.

United States


Scorching heat, crushing physical effort, and heavy gear mean firefighters face an increased risk of dehydration and heat-related injuries. Replenishing lost fluids is mission-critical for firefighters in the field so they don’t get sick from the heat.

As part of our long-term partnership with the National Volunteer Fire Council (NVFC), DripDrop launched our Firefighter Relief Donation Program for the 4th year running in June 2023, with a goal of distributing 500k servings to volunteer firefighters across the US. In addition, we will be providing 70k servings to Wildland Fire Departments who are at great risk of dehydration as they help to prevent and fight wildfires this summer.

United States


The Salvation Army considers extreme heat a natural disaster in Arizona, and its Emergency Disaster Services (EDS) has provided heat relief (indoor cooling, hydration and other heat relief items) for more than a decade, currently as part of the Heat Relief Regional Network.

This summer, DripDrop provided 150k servings to the Salvation Army Southwest division’s extreme heat relief efforts across many southwest communities including in Phoenix, Tempe, Tucson, Yuma and Las Vegas. In addition, the relationship is expanding into Texas where 60K servings have been donated to the Salvation Army's Emergency Disaster Services center in Arlington TX to be distributed as needed during their emergency response efforts throughout the summer.

US Extreme Weather


Throughout the first few months of 2023, thousands across the United States have been affected by extreme weather events—with tornadoes in the MidWest and South, as well as flooding in California leaving many without their homes, livelihoods and possessions.

Our partners are uniquely positioned to help immediately after a disaster occurs. For example, Global Empowerment Mission’s new West Coast facility was able to quickly assist the communities affected in Northern California, while directly after the first tornado hit in March, GEM BStrong deployed to Mississippi to begin distributing Family Necessity Kits - which include DripDrop, pet supplies, and other BStrong cash cards. They have committed over $1M in aid to help those affected.

Ukraine War


A year into the Ukraine war, support and resources are still desperately needed. Many civilians are still displaced and grappling with the limited access to food, utilities, and basic essentials.

DripDrop remains committed to providing donations that go directly to the relief efforts in Ukraine led by our trusted partners, Global Empowerment Mission and Heart to Heart International. As Dr. Dolhun stated, "Just showing up matters" and it is a privilege to be able to stand by Ukrainians and show support during this time. Your purchases make a real impact and are instrumental in providing this critical humanitarian aid.

Kahramanmaras Earthquake


A massive 7.8 magnitude earthquake struck Southern Turkey and Syria in the early hours of February 6—leaving a devastating loss of life and many people injured, displaced, and in need of help.

We are proud to support this great organization and reach those in need of life-saving dehydration relief.



As the war in Ukraine continues, support and resources are needed more than ever. Millions of civilians are living without access to food, water, health care and other essentials.

In October, our inventor Dr. Dolhun returned to Ukraine to continue the work he began in March. During his trip, he was able to deliver essential medical supplies that were in demand, as well as hundreds of servings of DripDrop. As Dr. Dolhun stated, "Just showing up matters" and it is a privilege to be able to stand by Ukrainians and show support during this time.

United States


In late September, Hurricane Ian, one of the strongest storms ever to make landfall on Florida's west coast, left residents reeling. A vicious combination of winds, rain, and storm surges has caused devastating loss of life, ongoing flooding, downed power lines, and impassable roads— leaving millions without power or clean water.

DripDrop's boots-on-the-ground Mission partners responded immediately, working overtime to help those affected by this disaster. Global Empowerment Mission supported victims by sending 50 trucks of aid and providing communities with Family Necessity Boxes containing 1-2 weeks of essentials (including DripDrop) and food. While Heart to Heart International deployed their disaster response teamand provided medical aid (including dehydration relief) to the hard-hit communities.

United States


So far in 2022, 50,691 wildfires have burned 6,717,555 acres in the United States. This is the most wildfires-to-date in the past 10 years. Dehydration is a critical safety concern for firefighters, especially wildland firefighters who are carrying 50lbs of equipment while battling flames as hot as 1,472℉.

As part of our long-term partnership with the National Volunteer Fire Council (NVFC), DripDrop launched our Firefighter Relief Donation Program in July, with a goal of distributing 400k servings to volunteer firefighters across the US. In addition, we provided over 90k servings to Wildland Fire Departments who are at great risk of dehydration as they help to prevent and fight wildfires this summer.

When disaster strikes, quick response times are crucial to relief efforts. Our newest Mission Partner, Feed the Children, knows how important it is to anticipate and immediately address damage caused by hurricanes, floods, earthquakes and tornadoes —anything that leaves children and their families vulnerable.

Feed the Children works with community partners in hard-hit areas to distribute food, water, cleaning supplies, and essentials to families in need.

In August 2022, DripDrop kicked off our partnership with Feed the Children through an initial donation of 200,000 servings that will be utilized by their disaster response team as needs arise. We look forward to our continued relationship with Feed the Children in supporting their significant efforts to help those in need.

California, US


Multiple wildfires have caused evacuations, threatened and destroyed homes, and caused widespread damage across California. The Oak Fire, McKinney Fire, Fairview Fire and Mosquito Fire have burned over 150k acres and destroyed hundreds of structures. Thousands of people were evacuated and in need of support.

DripDrop’s partners Global Empowerment Mission and The Salvation Army responded immediately with boots-on-the-ground support. GEM supplied BStrong Family Necessity Kits and emergency supplies, and The Salvation Army provided supplies and meals to those affected and the First Responders. DripDrop is proud to partner with both organizations to supply dehydration relief for their emergency response services.

Southeast US


In late July, record-setting rainfall in southern and eastern Kentucky left more than 30 people dead and trapped thousands more inside their homes. Additionally, flash flooding occurred in and around St. Louis, MO prompting an emergency response to help the victims.

To help provide relief to those affected by the flooding, DripDrop’s partner Global Empowerment Mission responded with boots-on-the-ground support. GEM BStrong emergency supply kits, in which DripDrop is included, were provided on-site to those in need.

Phoenix, AZ


Extreme heat has become a serious issue across many cities in the United States, and is now the #1 weather-related cause of death. In addition, each summer more than 65,000 Americans on average visit an emergency room for acute heat illness. This issue has become especially dangerous in places like Phoenix, AZ. According to the Maricopa Association of Governments, there have been an average of nearly 200 heat-associated deaths per year in Maricopa County since 2014.

To help provide relief during extreme heat events, DripDrop partnered with the Salvation Army to supply 50,000 servings of DripDrip to be distributed amongst 11 Emergency Heat Relief cooling centers across the Phoenix area that are activated during excessive heat warnings throughout the summer. DripDrop is handed out alongside bottles of water to help provide much needed dehydration relief to those seeking a break from the extreme temperatures.

DripDrop also donated 20,000 servings to Phoenix Rescue Mission to assist in their Code:Red efforts to assist the homeless during extreme heat days in Phoenix with water, hygiene kits and shelter.

New Mexico, USA


In May, New Mexico experienced two of the largest wildfires they’ve seen in the state’s history, with several others across the state. While wildfires are expected, the fire season has started much earlier than previous years, burning over 300,000 acres, and displacing thousands of people.

To help provide support to those in need, DripDrop partnered with the Salvation Army to supply 20,000 servings of DripDrip for their relief efforts. This donation was directed to First Responders fighting the wildfires, in addition to evacuees who had to leave their homes.

The Nature Conservancy


To increase ecosystem resilience, moderate wildfire behavior and support fire-dependent cultures, The Nature Conservancy conducts controlled burns and works with diverse networks of fire practitioners throughout much of the United States.

To support these efforts, DripDrop donated over 25,000 servings to The Nature Conservancy. We reached over 70 fire practitioners and their teams using their professional skills and experience to safely and effectively to maintain fire’s role where it benefits people and nature and help keep fire out of places where it is destructive. Learn more about TNC’s work here.

Ukraine Mission Trip


We are in the midst of a major refugee crisis. Over 4 million Ukrainians have fled their country and, as the war continues, it's estimated that over 6 million more will be displaced. In early April, Dr. Dolhun traveled into Ukraine to provide much-needed medical assistance and supplies.

In 5 days, Dr. Dolhun and team were able to provide 2,000 servings of DripDrop and 100lbs of medical equipment, with the majority of this aid going directly to supply a hospital outside of Mariupol which had been bombed out but was still treating patients. There remains much more work to be done, and we will continue to support Ukraine through humanitarian aid.



Due to the invasion of Ukraine, a humanitarian crisis has unfolded as food and medical supplies are running extremely low across the country, while millions of people have been displaced and are seeking refuge in bordering countries.

In response through our boots on the ground partners, Global Empowerment Mission and Heart to Heart International, we have donated over 525k servings of DripDrop that are included in vital necessity kits for refugees, as well as distributed with medical supplies to clinics across Ukraine.

2020/ In partnership with the Foundation For International Medical Relief of Children (FIMRC) we provided clinical care and relief from widespread dehydration associated with infectious disease to many living below the poverty line.

USA Wildfires


The National Interagency Fire Center reported that U.S. wildfires burned 10.27 million acres in 2020 – the highest yearly total on record. For wildland firefighters, carrying 50lbs of equipment while battling flames as hot as 1,472℉, dehydration is a critical safety concern.

After years of driving DripDrop from our California office to active fires, we began a long-term partnership with the National Volunteer Fire Council (NVFC) to distribute it to volunteer firefighters across the US. In 2020, we shipped over 200,000 sticks to crews in need of dehydration relief fast.

USA COVID Response


As COVID-19 became a global health crisis, frontline healthcare workers were increasingly at risk for dehydration. Long hours exerting themselves to help others while wearing PPE meant few had time to properly hydrate.

Early in the pandemic, we partnered with Krucial Staffing to distribute 40,000 sticks of DripDrop to travel nurses volunteering to work in NYC. We also sent sticks to 250 hospitals across the country to help frontline medical heroes fight dehydration on the job.

The Dominican Republic


More than 40% of Dominicans live below the poverty line, which lends itself to an extremely low standard of health. Infectious disease is prevalent and chronic non-communicable diseases are on the rise. Associated dehydration is frequent and widespread.

For our 2nd mission trip with our partner, The Foundation for International Medical Relief of Children, Team DripDrop traveled to Project Restauracion. They taught community classes on the use of oral rehydration therapy and provided clinical care, both door-to-door and at health clinics.

2019/ DripDrop begins a sustainable partnership with International Medical Corps to deliver DripDrop to humanitarian disaster sites worldwide.



More than 40% of rural Ugandans live in abject poverty and the country is in the top 10 for HIV prevalence, creating a complex health situation. Malaria and other tropical diseases, of which dehydration is a symptom, are major, ongoing health concerns.

In 2019, Dr. Dolhun began volunteering at FIMRC Project Sites. He brought along fellow DripDrop team members and product. They performed consultations and provided effective dehydration treatment to this community combating deadly, daily dehydration from ongoing health crises.



In Malawi, nearly one out of every five children under five will die from diarrheal disease. Tragically, these diseases are preventable and treatable. ORS could save the lives of hundreds of thousands of children here, which is why Dr. Dolhun has been bringing DripDrop to Malawi for years.

Dr. Dolhun returned to Malawi to support our long-term partnership with The Pebbles Project and Drink Malawi—both of which distribute DripDrop to treat dehydration. On this trip, he saw the improving dynamics and increased focus the community was now placing on live-saving oral rehydration therapy.

USA Wildfires


The Kincade Fire was the largest fire of 2019 in California, burning 77,758 acres in Sonoma County. Firefighters can lose up to one gallon of sweat per hour while battling active fires, and this one lasted 13 days.

Our team personally distributed over 20,000 sticks of DripDrop to hotshot and strike crews fighting this blaze. Because dehydration compromises mental acuity and physical performance, DripDrop helped ensure that these highly skilled heroes could function at peak levels.

The Bahamas


Hurricane Dorian was a devastating Category 5 hurricane, regarded as the worst natural disaster in Bahama’s recorded history. The flood limited access to toilets, clean water and medications, and increased the transmission of water-borne and infectious diseases. As a result, tens of thousands of Bahamians were at risk of dehydration.

DripDrop collaborated with Bethenny Frankel’s BStrong initiative and the Global Empowerment Mission to transport pallets of DripDrop to the suffering Bahamian community, including first responders, makeshift camps, and hospitals.

DR Congo


An Ebola outbreak in the North Kivu province became the second-largest in recorded history. Ebola symptoms cause extreme gastric distress, including diarrhea and vomiting, which rapidly deplete the body of vital water and electrolytes. Dehydration, in turn, can amplify inflammation and contribute to bleeding that many Ebola patients experience. Here, dehydration can be deadly.

In 2019, DripDrop began a long-term partnership with International Medical Corps to respond to the Ebola crisis in Democratic Republic of the Congo. 55,000 sticks of DripDrop (and counting) have helped both patients and aid workers fight deadly dehydration here. These efforts have saved lives during the 2018-2020 North Kivu outbreak and the ongoing Équateur outbreak.

Costa Rica


In developing countries, dehydration due to parasitic water and infectious disease causes up to 80% of diarrhoeal fatalities. And poor access to resources and healthcare increase the severity of dehydration within these areas.

On our first mission trip with the Foundation For International Medical Relief of Children FIMRC, our team traveled to Project Alajuelita, Costa Rica. There, we treated dehydration in a community of displaced and impoverished Nicaraguan refugees and provided instruction on oral rehydration therapy.

Dr. Dolhun led a team of volunteers to Kathmandu and surrounding areas. Traveling community by community, they identified adults and children suffering from severe dehydration and treated them with DripDrop — a solution that can be administered in almost any conditions.

2014/ DripDrop is distributed in Uganda to combat high mortality rates associated with cholera outbreaks and subsequent dehydration due to diarrhea.

Uganda & Malawi


23.8 million people living in Uganda don’t have clean water, making Cholera outbreaks, and subsequent dehydration due to diarrhea, a common occurrence. Every year, over 4,500 Ugandan children under the age of 5 die from diarrhea.

Dr. Dolhun traveled to local hospitals and clinics in Uganda and Malawi, introducing them to DripDrop. His visit (and the staggering statistics) inspired him to initiate a long term commitment to educating African communities on how to treat life-threatening dehydration.

2013/ Dr. Dolhun treats Super Typhoon Haiyan survivors severely dehydrated from cholera with DripDrop. The favorable taste helped kids keep down this life-saving solution.



Super Typhoon Haiyan, a Category 5 storm, devastated this archipelagic country. Fourteen million people were affected and infrastructure was destroyed. The resulting lack of access to clean water and poor sanitation created a breeding ground for cholera, whose severe vomiting and diarrhea can bring about life-threatening dehydration.

Dr. Dolhun and a small team of medical personnel arrived in Tacloban (the most densely populated city, which was 90% destroyed) 11 days after the storm surge. They treated hundreds of children for dehydration with DripDrop. The favorable taste helped kids keep down this life-saving solution, allowing it to work.

2010/ The first formulation of DripDrop is used by first responders, including inventor Dr. Dolhun, to treat life-threatening dehydration in Haiti during a relief mission.



Pakistan experienced a heavy monsoon season that covered a fifth of the country in floodwater, killing nearly 2,000 people and severely decreasing access to potable water. Diarrheal illnesses that lead to dehydration spread quickly, especially among young children.

Dr. Dolhun and a small team of volunteers traveled to Pakistan to administer DripDrop to severely dehydrated children and infants. They taught distraught parents how to use ORS to treat their own children, equipping them with a life-saving tool.



A magnitude 7.0 earthquake left the community of Haiti in despair. Over 3 million people were affected, leaving the already poor country without power and exposed to dehydration risk due to high temperatures and lack of access to water.

Three days after the earthquake, Dr. Dolhun was one of the first responders to arrive in Haiti. He equipped other first responders providing aid with the first formulation of DripDrop and instructed them on how to diagnose and treat dehydration using this life-saving solution.
