Shop for Refugees – Chinese New Year Gifts

Chinese New Year is the time of year when all families are gathered to spend time together, but not everyone has this privilege.  Send your blessing this Chinese New Year to refugees in need.  Ranging from nutritious food, blankets, sleeping mats to urgent medical support, these life-changing necessities can provide refugees with a sense of normalcy and hope to begin the Year of Tiger.

Please send a lucky bag to refugees this Chinese New Year!

Lucky Bag for Health 

Health services are often unavailable or inaccessible for refugees who have fled their homes. With an emergency health centre built inside a refugee camp, people in need can access essential medical services. The Lucky Bag for Health can support to build an emergency health centre.

Lucky Bag for Nutrition and Water

Malnutrition and lack of access to clean water are common situations among refugees’ communities. This Lucky Bag for Nutrition and Water can support a refugee child’s one month supply of Plumpy’Nut® (a therapeutic, peanut-based food that saves children’s lives), a set of simple cooking kit and to build a tab water system to provide clean water.

Lucky Bag for Shelter 

Refugees and displaced families are forced to leave everything they have behind. Shelter, thermal blanket and sleep mat will keep them warm when they arrive in the reception centres and camps, especially in cold, freezing winters. This Lucky Bag for Shelter can support a family of 5 to live in a shelter and to receive 5 winter jackets, 5 blankets, and 5 sleeping bags to keep them safe and warm.
