  • Hygiene kit with toothbrushes, toothpaste, shampoo, anti-bacterial soap and sanitary napkins (packed for a family)
    Clothes suitable for tropical climate
  • Blankets and mats
  • Cash/G-cash and tents for relief organization

If you don’t have the means to donate, you can offer your spare time by serving as volunteer in a repacking warehouse. You can also sell some personal items that you no longer need, you can cook or bake and donate the proceeds to legitimate organizations.
