In the wake of a disaster, the essentials provided in an emergency hygiene kit can mean the difference between sickness and health for struggling families. GlobalMedic is coming to the aid of those in Nepal with its hygiene kit distribution program. These kits include essential every day supplies such as soap, shampoo, diapers, sanitary napkins and blankets.
Over 1,500 hygiene kits have been delivered to families, which will provide them with every day hygiene necessities for two months. The items in the kit are procured locally in order to support the local economy, lower logistics costs and provide culturally appropriate hygiene kits.
The hygiene kits are usually distributed in conjunction with a household water unit in order to meet water and health needs of a family. A vote for this initiative will help provide essential cleanliness for those who've been left with little else in Nepal.
