How can you help?

  

Food

As observed above many of these IDP camps are home to over a thousand people  so you can image how much food is needed to run the camps.  Food is always a need as supplies run out very quickly.  Without livelihood opportunities to help the people living in these camps to  earn income, they  struggle to purchase even the most basic necessities, including the food they need to keep their families healthy and strong. They need food items  like rice, corn, beans, cooking oil, flour, Fruits, vegetables and canned foods.


 

Hygiene items

Most IDP camps are crowded or makeshift shelters without proper water or sanitation systems: Primary school building, abandoned buildings — wherever they can find relative safety. These dire conditions can have disastrous consequences on their health and morale.

Without basic hygiene supplies to help them stay clean, people are at heightened risk of disease, malnutrition, and losing the confidence needed to face an uncertain future. Hygiene items like soap, toothpaste, reusable sanitary towels and razors are essential to helping them stay healthy and maintain their dignity.  



 

Newborn supplies

Life doesn’t stop when someone becomes an IDP — people still have happy milestones like getting married or having a baby. But caring for a new baby in a camp can be especially challenging.

Newborns need bottles, blankets, clothing, mosquito nets, diapers, formula, cereal to stay healthy and safe. Not all mothers are able to nurse their baby , and this is due to certain health condition, or lack of milk supply.



Clothing and Shoes 


There is a constant need for clothing in IDP camps, especially for quickly growing youngsters.

Clean, quality clothing helps protect them from the elements — cold during the dry season and heat during the hot rainy season.
