PROJECT HYGIENE KIT: YOUR P100 WILL GO A LONG WAY

I hope this post isn’t too late yet. Thing with juggling life with both worlds, the offline and the online, sometimes you felt like a deer in the headlights. I was too occupied in the past days packing relief goods and briefing volunteers for our psychosocial team that will be deployed to Samar and I was out of the online freeway for a while and when I hitched back I had to dig deep and get myself doses of information of what’s happening around blogosphere. 

Indeed, Yolanda’s devastation is surely way beyond our imagination, but seeing how this devastation has brought the best out of the global community is far more inspiring and moving. The surge of help coming from around the globe to the survivors of Yolanda is just so overwhelming and we can’t thank these angels enough for their effort. 'Ang Diyos na bahala sa inyo.' 

The Davao Blogger’s community is also doing its share to help by coming up with 1,000 hygiene kits that will be sent to the typhoon survivors. 

Here’s an infographic of the anatomy of the hygiene kit. 

PROJECT HYGIENE KIT: YOUR P100 WILL GO A LONG WAY

“No one is useless in this world who lightens the burdens of another” -Charles Dickens 

The devastation caused by the typhoon Yolanda (Haiyan) has affected not only a few cities and houses in the Philippines but the majority of the Visayas region where the death counts has now reached thousands and number of families affected now millions. 

A conscious effort is now being undertaken by the Davao Bloggers Society to join the relief operations by raising a total of P100,000.00 to finance and produce 1,000 hygiene packs for the victims. Each kit costing to PHP100 or USD2.50 will contain toiletries and other essentials good for one week's use by one person. Hygiene kits were chosen to be donated as this is something that is not yet prioritized by many donors. 

Each kit will contain the following:

For MALES – Total Cost: PhP95.60
* 60g Soap
* Weekly pack Shampoo – 8 sachets x 4 mL each
* 3 packs of 30 g Toothpaste
* Toothbrush
* 40 Pulls Pop Up Tissue
* 10 g Cotton
* 75 mL Alcohol
* 2 x 3 mL Deolotion
* 12 mL Insect repellant
* Resealable Zip Bag
