Keeping Children Healthy and Strong with Kits for Kids
Our Kits for Kids provide personal hygiene and basic “medicine cabinet” items that are scarce in the developing world. If a child gets hurt, families might have to travel a long distance by bicycle, bus or even on foot to receive care at the nearest hospital or medical clinic. Working with volunteer Pediatricians and Nurses, Project C.U.R.E. developed Kits for Kids to give parents in developing countries the supplies they need to provide basic care at home. In our real medical kits for kids, we even provide a bar of soap to encourage handwashing and avoid serious infections. Kits for Kids is a great service learning project or family volunteer activity!
