Healthy Birth Kits
To participate in the Fèt ak Sante initiative:
Assemble the Healthy Birth Kit Putting together a healthy birth kit is easy, fun and can be enjoyed by all ages and groups. It is very important not to vary from the exact contents of this kit in any way. Each of the kits should be identical with no additional or extra items!
In a Hefty ® "one-zip" zip-lock bag assemble the following items:
- 1 single edge razor blades
- 1 nail brush
- 1 4.5 ounce bar of Dial ® antibacterial soap (or equivalent)
- 2 4X4" sterile gauze pads in the wrapper
- 2 8" sections of quarter inch umbilical tape (click here for more information on umbilical tape product #401-28)
- 1 3X5" "prayer" card with your name, address, telephone number and prayer wishes
(We will translate and forward your prayer wishes, but keep your name and address confidential!)
Mail a minimum donation of $15.00 per kit for the Health Family to your ICC national office. Please include a complete inventory of kits sent for receipt purposes. Each gift represents one child and family who will get the support and hope they need for a healthy start.
