Refugee Care Initiative
The Refugee Care Initiative Services provides 3 main services: food, clothing, health. The Food service provides portable nutrition for refugees that fit into their cultural needs. Refugees are required to fill out a form emphasizing food allergies and cultural culinary taboos that they must follow. The second service, clothing, is a basic charitable drive that can be fundraised anywhere. Volunteers are encouraged to start up a fundraiser in their area where adults and children donate clothing. The third service is the creation of a blood bank. The plan is to partner with blood banks that come in trailers. Volunteers will donate blood to the trailers and the blood will be transported to refugee agencies. The purpose of the blood bank is for individuals seeking medical attention (blood thinning, anemia, etc.) are accessible to blood that may be needed to complete a medical procedure.
