2008 Cause of the Year

Rapid Response Kits

Donate money toward FAAST's Rapid Response Kits. Throughout 2008, we're encouraging TCW readers to contribute to these kits for women who've just been rescued out of trafficking. Many of these survivors escape with nothing but the clothes they're wearing. FAAST Rapid Response Kits provide basic clothing and hygiene items, including a pair of rubber sandals, two T-shirts, a pair of pants/shorts or a skirt, a toothbrush, a tube of toothpaste, a small bottle of shampoo, a bar of soap, a small towel, and a comb or brush.

Along with the kit, FAAST provides recipients with transportation to a safe place. Although one of the most crucial forms of assistance to survivors, transportation can be prohibitively expensive. But since most survivors have been dislocated from their communities, they need to safely reach their home where they can be reunited with their family, or travel to an appropriate service provider where, removed from captivity, they can begin to heal.

These kits will be distributed in Sierra Leone, Liberia, Cambodia, India, China, Sri Lanka, Indonesia, and South Africa. The cost is $60 each, and you can donate toward part of a kit, a whole kit, or mulitiple kits.
