Emergency Supply Pack

In the wake of disaster, conflict or in remote communities, good sanitation practices and clean water can make all the difference. Children and their families can help to prevent the outbreak or spread of disease that is often easily treatable but deadly. Each kit contains important supplies such as water purification tablets, buckets and portable water containers that are enough for one family, and enough food to last one month.

Frequent handwashing with soap and clean water has been proven to be one of the most effective ways families can protect themselves and their children against deadly diseases and viruses such as COVID-19. With the threat of COVID-19 on the rise, the effort to protect children by teaching them how to practice good hygiene has only been increasing in importance.

In such critical times, UNICEF emergency kits with sanitation products have been crucial in countries such as Rwanda, where it is heavily relied upon to keep families and communities safe.
