Disaster Relief Kits

Disaster Relief Kits help care for vulnerable people during times of crisis. They help sustain everyday life by providing basic necessities.

Each kit has a specific purpose and is tailored to meet that purpose. The design reflects years of experience dealing with a variety of situations and strict rules governing product entry into many countries around the world. Because of this experience, it is essential that the kits contain only the items listed – nothing more.

By donating kit supplies or financial gifts to purchase those supplies, you make a direct, tangible difference in the lives of desperate people all over the world.
