3 family hygiene kits

Toothpaste, soap and washing powder might not sound like much, but in the middle of an emergency, these everyday essentials are vital for keeping families clean and healthy. Our family hygiene kit also includes a bucket, a clothes line, toothbrushes, shampoo, water purification tablets and sanitary napkins. With these basics, mums and dads can ensure their children keep their teeth brushed and hands washed, and that the whole family is protected from disease.

Give the gift of dignity and health.

When relentless rainfall across Nepal in 2017 brought monsoon flooding and landslides, thousands of families like Meera’s were left without some of the most basic daily necessities.

Receding water left sludge and contamination at everyone's doorsteps, raising the risk of diseases such as diarrhoea and typhoid. Meera, her husband Sipahi, and their three children received a hygiene kit that included soap, towels and toothbrushes to help them care for their health and hygiene.

These may seem like simple items, but their effects are profound. This Inspired Gift will reach a family like Meera’s and help them maintain their health and dignity as they cope with difficult circumstances.
