Get the most important things in an emergency case
30 euros are enough for an emergency package including hygiene articles like soap, brush and toothbrush for a family of five people.
Catastrophes like earthquakes, droughts or a flood often takes all the people have. The emergency package of the Welthungerhilfe provides the people with what they essentially need and with what they’ve lost in the catastrophe: Nutrition like rice, beans, oil and salt. But also cooking pots or hygiene articles like soap, toothbrushes or towels mean a lot in emergencies.
After the flood in Pakistan in July of 2010, the Welthungerhilfe supported about 150,000 people supplying them with food, potable water, hygiene items and canvas roofs. The floor took everything the people had. Our emergency assistance package will help in the first few, difficult months.
”The Welthungerhilfe saved us. We hat food for a few weeks. And seeds and tools for our fields to be repaired”, explained Feda Hussein from Pakistan.
- The Welthungerhilfe works closely with partner organisations for example in Haiti.
- Moreover each helping method and each aid package are adapted to those of other helping organisations avoiding overlapping and helping as much people as possible.
- The Welthungerhilfe still works hard to buy local products even in emergency situations in order to keep the local economy moving.
