Supplies for Refugee Camps

This summer, my sister, brother, and I will be volunteering at one of the Syrian refugee camps in Kurdistan established by the United Nations Refugee Agency and the Kurdish Regional Government [http://new.krg.us/the-syrian-refugee-crisis-and-the-kurdistan-regional-government/]. 220,000 Syrians have fled to Kurdistan for safety; this particular camp has over 25,000 refugees [about 10,000 are children] and needs as much help as it can get. The coordinator said they are in need of hygiene items [like toothbrushes and toothpaste], mosquito repellent, and school supplies [They've built a school in the camp]. If we reach our goal of $1000, we will use all of the funds raised to buy those supplies and take them over with us; anything we raise above that will be donated directly to the refugee camp for them to use as needed. Also, if you'd like to donate items [in bulk quantities] instead of money, please contact me at [email redacted]

Any and everything will be appreciated!
