In times of crisis critical supplies are urgently needed as supply chains have been disrupted and supplies are not readily available.
Simple items such as water can be a matter of life and death for those in peril. Dehydration is common the first three days of a disaster. Other aid such a toiletry, first aid, food, medicine, socks, just to list a few critical items that need to be supplied to those in crisis.
