Summary

As families in Texas begin to rebuild their lives from the devastating rains and flooding produced by Hurricane Harvey, MAP International is sending 2,250 Disaster Health Kits to serve those still residing in shelters. These kits include essential hygiene items to help prevent the spread of disease. People exposed to floodwater are at risk for skin rashes, conjunctivitis, and ear and throat illnesses. Each kit is designed to help meet the needs of one person residing in a shelter for one week.

Challenge

There are currently more than 15,000 people residing in over 150 shelters throughout Florida who were displaced as a result of Hurricane Irma. Flooding and disasters put children, the elderly and disabled at increased risk for health issues. Many already have compromised immune systems making them more susceptible to illness. Individuals exposed to flood waters are at risk for skin rashes, conjunctivitis, and ear and throat illnesses. Disaster Health Kits help prevent the spread of illness.

Solution

MAP International is sending Disaster Health Kits to serve the people still living in shelters in Houston. These kits include antiseptic wipes, soap, toothbrushes, toothpaste and other essential items that help prevent the spread of disease. Each kit is designed to help meet the needs of one person residing in a shelter for one week.

Long-Term Impact

By preventing the spread of illness to those affected by Hurricane Harvey, communities will be able to recover from the effects of flooding sooner.
