Basic Hygiene Kit
Soap, toothpaste, toilet paper – these are the essentials families around the world desperately need after a disaster. This kit can help restore a sense of dignity and comfort to a family forced to flee with nothing but the clothes on their backs. Basic toiletries also help prevent the spread of disease after emergencies. Thank you.

“At that time we had no pots or anything to cook with so Red Cross gave us kitchen utensils, pots, plates. They gave us everything we need to prepare food. They also gave us shelter kits, a white bucket that had soap and other things, toilet paper, razor to shave.” – Jack.
Jack and his young family had to evacuate with nothing when a volcano eruption destroyed their home in Vanuatu. Once they’d reached a safe area, Red Cross provided families with some basic essentials to maintain their health and dignity.
