Emergency Hygiene Kit

Virtual Gift Catalog - Long Description - Boy with Water

Rapid onset disasters result in such sudden population movements that affected families do not have time to evacuate with any of their basic possessions. Consequently, families may find themselves in displacement camps or spontaneous settlements where public health risks are elevated due to poor sanitation conditions and the proximity of one family to another. To reduce the risk of water related disease transmission in this environment, ACF distributes hygiene kits consisting of water containers (buckets), bathing and laundry soaps, and menstrual hygiene materials.

At Action Against Hunger, a 501(c)(3) organization, our mission is to provide emergency relief and sustainable solutions for those who need them most, in some 40 countries around the world. To that end, your gift purchase through our virtual gift catalog is combined with the gifts of others to help as many people as possible. Your gift selection is symbolic in nature, and we allocate the funds you donate where they are needed most in our areas and programs of operation. Action Against Hunger successfully assisted more than 6 million people in 2011.
