Access to clean water is vital to the survival of vulnerable populations, especially during emergencies like the coronavirus outbreak. Among these vulnerable populations are refugees, who have been forced to flee their homes, leaving everything they know behind. These displaced people have limited access to the clean water, hygiene tools and sanitation resources that keep people healthy and help prevent the spread of disease.
Fortunately, there are things we can do to help them access clean water. By purchasing a gift from USA for UNHCR’s gift catalog you can help refugees access the tools they need to survive.
Check out these three gifts you can buy today that will help refugees meet their water, sanitation and hygiene needs.
Water filters allow refugees to access clean drinking water, which protects against diseases like cholera and dysentery. These diseases are especially dangerous for refugees, who arrive weak and often ill from their journeys. You can keep clean, safe water flowing — enabling families to stay healthy and rebuild their lives by purchasing a water filter today. One water filter is just $30.
Toothpaste. Soap. Laundry detergent. Many of us take access to these household products for granted, but for a family that has been forced to flee their home, these products are often difficult to come by. By purchasing a personal hygiene kit today, you can provide displaced people in need with household items that keep them healthy and help restore their dignity. Buy two kits today for just $50.
Refugees need a way to transport and store safe, clean water for drinking, cooking, cleaning and bathing. These simple yet effective tools are essential for helping vulnerable people maintain their health and wellbeing. For just $20 you can purchase TEN jerry cans for displaced people in need.
Your support can help save millions of lives. Join us in providing displaced people with the water and sanitation tools they need to survive during this difficult time.
