Building Hygiene Kits is Easier than Ever

 

What are Hygiene Kits?

Hygiene kits include essential items to stay clean such as toothpaste, washcloth, soap and shampoo. Kits provide a little bit of normalcy in a small bag for those who have suffered during a crisis. They offer the first line of defense against the spread of illness and a first step toward staying healthy!

Our Story

PowrServ events support the non-profit, Heart to Heart International. PowrServ was inspired by Heart to Heart International's founder Dr. Gary Morsch's book "The Power of Serving Others".  Heart to Heart International was started in 1992 with the vision of Dr. Gary Morsch and other Kansas City Rotary Club members who were on a mission to deliver medication after the Chernobyl disaster in Russia. This one-time event planted a vision in Dr. Morsch to create an organization (Heart to Heart International) to consistently serve the poor.

Empower Girls Kit

Girls in developing nations often lack access to adequate menstrual hygiene products. To avoid embarrassment, potential attack and the cultural stigma associated with menstruation, many girls choose to stay away from school during their periods, missing several days of education. The Empower Girls kit was developed to give girls the confidence and security to continue attending school, regardless of menstruation. 

Items: Soap, detergent, measuring cup, bowl, reusable menstrual underwear, whistle, crank flashlight and educational material: Menstruation Basics.
