FIRST AID KITS for Internally Displaced Persons (IDPs) in Ukraine

IDPs are people who fled the destruction in their Ukrainian communities and remained in Ukraine.  There are about 100,000 of these individuals who have found shelter in Uzhhorod, Ukraine.  The Corvallis Sister Cities Association-Uzhhorod is gathering and putting together hopefully 500 First Aid Kits that have been requested by these IDPs in Uzhhorod, Ukraine. The sizes of each item below are mostly taken from items at a Dollar Store.  We want to obtain similar sizes so the items can all fit into a gallon size Ziploc bag, but there are likely lower priced items for many on the list at various stores.

NEEDED FIRST AID KIT ITEMS   Note asterisks ** and description below

Thanks for your help!  Consider asking your friends, neighbors, book clubs, physician, dentist, faith based group, local grocer or business, and others if they will help provide some of the items on the list.
