Update on Disaster Health Kit Distribution

When Hurricane Harvey made landfall in August in Houston, Texas, MAP International was preparing to do what they have done for over 60 years - responding to disasters by providing medicine and health supplies. MAP is tightly focused on preventing the spread of disease and illness. Just two days after landfall on August 28, as devastating rains and flooding continued to destroy parts of the city, MAP sent its first shipment of 1250 Disaster Health Kits (DHKs) to shelters in Victoria, Texas. Disaster Health Kits include antiseptic wipes, soap, toothbrushes, toothpaste, a washcloth and other essential items. Each kit is designed to meet the needs of one person residing in a shelter for one week.  MAP teamed up with Convoy of Hope, a partner of more than ten years, to deliver these much-needed supplies to shelters and community health clinics.

In addition to the kits delivered immediately after Harvey hit, MAP delivered 1000 more Disaster Health Kits on September 8 for people served by care givers at the San Jose Clinic in downtown Houston. MAP is teaming up with its partner, Project Hope, to provide this assistance.

While the number of evacuees seeking refuge in Houston's emergency shelters has dwindled, many people are still facing dire living conditions. Over 50,000 individuals are now residing in government-paid hotels. With your generous support, MAP plans to deliver more Disaster Health Kits at public drop off points through its partner, Convoy of Hope.
