Four months after a 7.2-magnitude earthquake struck Haiti, Humanity & Inclusion's emergency response continues with the distribution of hygiene kits to people with disabilities.
As of Nov. 17, Humanity & Inclusion's team has distributed 301 hygiene kits to people living with disabilities as well as organizations that represent people with disabilities.
The kits include:
- 12 units of soap
- 5 packs of sanitary napkins
- 5 tooth brushes
- 2 tubes of toothpaste
- 4 rolls of toilet paper
- 2 towels
- 2 bags of laundry detergent
- 2 jerrycans
- 1 bucket with a tap for hand-washing
For kits distributed to people receiving rehabilitation care, a sponge and dish soap are also included to clean assistive devices.
By early 2022, the goal is to distribute approximately 1,500 hygiene kits with the help of Humanity & Inclusion's local partner FONTEN, a rehabilitation center in Les Cayes.
