The Dubois Charitable Foundation is announcing a new imitative to directly help families in Cuba recover from the effects of this summer‚Äôs hurricanes
This would involve the collection and assembly of Family Relief Kits.
These kits will be distributed to families in a hurricane ravaged area of Cuba, and will be given to those who have lost their home or substantial part of it, and are experiencing the greatest need. IE: families where a woman is pregnant, where a member(s) is physically or mentally impaired, old people in poor health, families with young children.
The kits that we are putting together for Cuban families, are based on an assumed 5 persons per family, and contain the following:
2 towels, bath or mid size.
1 tube toothpaste.
5 tooth brushes.
1 bottle shampoo (preferably shampoo and conditioner in one).
3 disposable razors.
comb and hair brush.
2 rolls toilet paper.
1 small mirror.
10 to 15 garbage bags.
5 acrylic glasses.
5 sets of silverware.
fry pan and cooking pot.
dish cleaning sponge.
1 small package, female sanitary pads.
1 package detergent (pouch or box).
1, 20 liter plastic pail with lid, or cardboard box to hold above items.
Other possible items, would be : skin cream, condoms, deodorant, cloth diapers and more.
The above list is a suggestion, and can be varied somewhat if need be.
we would welcome any comments.
We already have a few groups partnering with us on this and are hoping to form more partnerships either with groups or individuals.
You or you group can help either by assembling one or more kits and sending them to us or by making financial donations to this project. We estimate the cost per kit to be about $25 to $30.
We hope that with the participation of others we can send 500 of these.
Thank you and good night
