Mission Quilts, Blankets, School Kits, Fabric Kits, Personal Care Kits
Recurring flooding in the last decade in various regions of Burkina Faso has created a need for humanitarian assistance in the region. LWR's partners are also offering assistance to the refugees and displaced Malians in the region of Sahel and northern Burkina Faso by providing Personal Care Kits.
The distribution will be targeted to help predisposed to potential victims of socio-political upheaval and natural disasters, such as floods. Estimates show that the quilts and kits will reach approximately 87,500 people.

Mission Quilts, Personal Care Kits
LWR's partner in Ukraine is the North Star Foundation (NSF). NSF partners with many international nonprofits to receive and distribute donated goods to those who need them the most. These gifts will be invaluable during the cold winter months and will provide a sense of security and dignity to those who receive them. Estimates show that quilts and kits will reach over 30,000 people in this distribution.

United Nations Human Resource Depot (UNHRD) — Dubai, United Arab Emirates
August 25, 2015
LWR shipped Mission Quilts to the United Nations Human Resource Depot (UNHRD), located in the United Arab Emirates. As always, our priority is working to quickly and efficiently deliver Quilts and Kits after an emergency occurs. By sending your Quilts and Kits to this unique UNHRD warehouse, they stand ready to be deployed after a disaster and are prepositioned to help those in need when disaster strikes.
In the past, it has taken weeks and even months to get Quilts and Kits on the ground after a disaster, but through this new partnership, your gifts of love will be much closer to the people who need them. But don't worry — your Quilts and Kits won't sit waiting indefinitely! If an emergency doesn't call upon those resources, we'll send them to one of our other partners in that region to fulfill the needs of families coping with poverty.
