Basic health care and dental assistance are key components of projects COLORS operates in preschools and children’s homes. Along with the supply of essential materials to aid in basic health and hygiene, COLORS also educates on the techniques and importance of proper health care and nutrition. Project COLORS also undertakes de-worming of sick children, upon request by our partnered teachers.
Help from Home
Canadian volunteers, as well as local pharmacies and individuals, helped to source donations and create first aid and resource kits. The kits – equipped with hygienic, sewing, first aid, and educational resources – were distributed and used in COLORS’ projects.
COLORS also makes conscious efforts to aid in humanitarian relief efforts. Most notably, COLORS aided in the emergency relief missions relating to the Haitian earthquake.
‘Street kits’, comprised of basic hygiene and dental items, and school supplies, were given to street children, homeless others, and Haitian refugees, and facilitated by our COLORS Dominican volunteers. Further hygiene and skill building kits were sent to Haiti via UN relief workers.
