Church donating kits for Bangladesh refugees

Primary children, ages 3 to 11, of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints, with the help of their congregations, are collecting toothbrushes, washcloths, shampoo, combs, soaps, and toothpaste and assembling them into hygiene kits for refugees in Bangladesh.

More than 950,000 people have fled from Myanmar to Bangladesh in what is now the fastest-growing refugee crisis in the world, according to a news release from the church.

The kits will be taken to Bangladesh with the organization Compassion Take Action. Church members Annie and Alex Magee will go with this organization to personally deliver the kits.
