Assemble Hygiene Kits for Those In Need

Put together a small assistance package and make a big difference. Basic materials such as soap, band-aids, paper, pencils, and diapers seem small, but make a huge difference in an ongoing development program or when disaster strikes.

Our Health and School Kits are among the items most requested by our partners each year. The need is great, and we can never have too many on hand.

Please carefully follow the instructions below (download packing list):

  1. Buy a one-gallon plastic bag with a zipper closure and fill it with the following items:
    • One cotton hand towel measuring approximately 15″ x 28″ to 16″ x 32″ (no fingertip, bath, dish towel or microfiber)
    • One cotton washcloth (no microfiber)
    • One wide-tooth comb removed from the package
    • One fingernail or toenail clipper removed from the package
    • One bath-size bar of soap in the wrapper
    • One toothbrush in the package
