WHAT CAN I DO TO HELP?
WHAT SHOULD I NOT DO?
While there is always a desire to collect donations such as water, clothes or household products, these are not always the best. It is expensive to ship items and the required logistics on the ground for sorting, storing and distributing is a burden on the receiving community. Sometimes, we can also send well-intentioned but unneeded supplies.
