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. 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. With the help of product donations from Procter & Gamble, GlobalMedic lends support to protect the health of vulnerable Canadians.
Our volunteers assemble individual hygiene kits containing full sized items including shampoo, deodorant, toothpaste and menstrual hygiene products which are given to shelters, food banks and other support programs to distribute to their clients. We also pack family kits which in addition to hygiene items also contain household cleaning supplies and laundry detergent. This kits are distributed across the country to vulnerable Canadians.
