Women's Survivor Kit

The rebuilding of the women of Tacloban is going to take at least 1-2 years, maybe more. Rape and trafficking incident reports have increased and we’re putting together a Women's Survivor Kit to help women protect themselves and to help with their daily lives.

Our goal is to have at least 1,000 kits for the women which will require a $35,000 budget.

The Women's Survivor Kit is composed of the following items:

  • Waka Waka solar charger and lamp (size of a cell phone) - charges cell phones or shines 40 hours of light on one day of solar (http://us.waka-waka.com/products/) - $24.50 whole sale for a minimum order of 1,000 pcs
  • Cell phone - please donate a cell phone you no longer use! Donations solicited.
  • Certified Organic Seeds for home vegetable gardens (can be grown in pots) so families would have a source of fresh vegetables. $1/packet of 8 vegetable seeds.
  • Water Purification Tablets - emergency disinfection of drinking water of questionable bacteriological quality. Boiling water is difficult right now as common kitchens are limited. Two tablets makes 1 quart of water. Ready in 35 minutes. $6.95 / bottle of 50 tablets

Please sponsor a Tacloban Woman's Survival Kit for $35 per kit.
