Children who flee often don’t eat for days on end and arrive to camps malnourished. You can provide a supply of therapeutic food and help a severely malnourished refugee child recover.
A water filter can protect against diseases like cholera and dysentery, which can become deadly to refugee children weak from their journeys. You can keep clean, safe water flowing — enabling families to stay healthy and rebuild their lives.
For refugee families who have lost everything, a kitchen set of cutlery, plates and utensils can provide not only the necessities to cook a meal, but also a feeling of routine and security. You can provide families with these simple, important tools.
When refugees are forced to flee they leave everything behind — including the means to support themselves and their families. In Africa, the vast majority of refugees depend on agriculture for their livelihoods, so giving them the opportunity to grow crops is one of the best ways to help them rebuild their lives.
