When an area is struck be a natural disaster, the residents of that area and even the rescue teams and experts are not sure how long will it take to recover from the aftermaths of such calamities. Simply because it all depends on the intensity and nature of the natural or man-made disaster that may have occur and forced the local residents to evacuate the area.

Non-Food Items; Things You Should Not Give To Help Others!

Shocked? Well that’s true, we all are humans and we want to help each other in every possible way. Especially when things are dimmer and a natural disaster has struck.

There are both food and non-food items that we try to give away to help those that are stuck in the middle of nowhere, however one must be careful not to give following items while help the ones that are suffering:

  • Glass Bottles/Containers: Due to massive movement of aid such items may break and may cause injuries.
  • Scissors and Knives: With their sharp edges they may be hazardous for the aid providing personnel, kids and others.
  • Liquid Items: They may spill and may damage other products as well
  • Medicines: This may not help the cause because the medications you may be sending will be either expired or not prescribed.
  • Batteries: Due to changing temperatures and heavy shifting of aid items, batteries may explode.

One must therefore send non-food items that are prescribed by international aid organizations only as they will prove to be the real help for those that are going through difficult moments.
