This gift in action

Emergency kit

When a cyclone hit Vanuatu, Gideon Lamar’s family was made homeless along with many of his neighbours. But Oxfam was there, helping to keep people healthy. After the roof blew off Gideon’s home his first thought was to get his family to safety. It was only later he realised that they had little more with them than the clothes on their backs. But Oxfam was on hand distributing emergency kits full of hygiene essentials as part of its response. The toothbrushes, toothpaste, soap, sanitary towels and washcloths they contain help people stay clean and healthy. They also restore some normality to families like Gideon’s, forced to live in temporary shelters. “I’d never heard anything like the cyclone in my life. I was really scared. The walls shook so hard our house was destroyed. Thank you so much for giving us these things, we really are thankful for you coming to help us.”
