Mennonites, students call for aid

Tristate reacts to war

The Cincinnati Mennonite Fellowship is collecting relief kits for Iraq. The United Nations estimates that 1 million Iraqis have no access to hygiene supplies. A relief kit contains:

Four bars of bath soap; one plastic bottle of shampoo (13 to 24 ounces in a plastic bag); 10 cups powdered laundry detergent (double-bag in 1-gallon resealable bags); one squeeze-tube toothpaste (at least 6 ounces); four adult-size toothbrushes (leave in packaging); four new bath towels (medium weight, not white); hairbrush; wide-tooth comb and fingernail clipper; one box of adhesive bandages (at least 40 assorted); and one package of sanitary pads (18 to 24 thin maxi or ultra thin).

Place in a cardboard box and deliver to Cincinnati Mennonite Fellowship, 4229 Brownway Ave., Cincinnati, OH 45209.

The deadline is May 4. Cash contributions are welcome. Please mark your contribution: Iraq Families At Risk.

Information: 871-0035.

Xavier University students are also collecting humanitarian aid packages through the American Friends Service Committee. The kits have about the same items as above. The students have some items but are having difficulty finding wide-tooth combs, nail clippers, adhesive bandages and toothbrushes.

E-mail for more information or to help.
