Distributing Health Kits to the Most Vulnerable

In continuing with our relationship with Population Services International (PSI) Project HOPE is in the process of distributing 6,000 “Health Kits” to caregivers of its most vulnerable children in the Zambezia and Gaza Provinces of Mozambique.

Each kit is made up of a basic health manual, bottles of certeza to purify water, hand soap to wash with and more. Project HOPE has been distributing these kits through its large network of volunteer health educators.

Not only are the kits distributed, but the volunteers sit down with the caregivers and go through the kit explaining how to use everything, and providing basic high quality health education to the caregivers.

These kits will help provide needed training and protection from water borne diseases for the children and help protect caregivers from HIV and AIDS if used correctly.
