There are thousands of individuals and families in distress in Canada, whether struggling to find housing, basic necessities and protection from violence, or facing the aftermath of a disaster. With the help of product donations from Procter & Gamble, GlobalMedic lends support to protect the health of vulnerable Canadians. Thousands of Canadians access emergency shelters annually with 3,000+ women and children seeking emergency shelter daily and as many as 7,000 youth remain homeless on a given night.
Since July 2018 GlobalMedic has distributed more than 71,000 individual hygiene kits and 3400 family hygiene kits
These hygiene kits are assembled by GlobalMedic volunteers and other groups including MP’s on Parliament Hill who in 2018 packed 600 family hygiene kits to be distributed across Canada.
