Kits to be Assembled at Annual Conference

Health Kits and Sewing Kits will be assembled during Annual Conference 2016 in Corpus Christi. Delegates will be asked to donate the cost of the kit, then they will be invited to assemble the kits. Disaster Response will provide the supplies. 

"Health kits provide basic necessities to people who have been forced to leave their homes because of human conflict or natural disaster," according to UMCOM. "Health kits are also used as learning tools in personal hygiene, literacy, nutrition, and cooking classes."

"Sewing kits foster independence rather than dependence. Women can make clothing in their own size and in the style of their culture," according to UMCOM. "Cottage industries often grow out of the sewing classes where women use these kits to practice valuable income-generating skills.
