Disaster Relief icon

Disaster Relief

In the chaos of a natural disaster, many evacuees lack the time and space to bring many items, especially diapers, wipes, and other healthcare products. Without these products, individuals may develop diaper rash or other health-related issues, leading to medical treatment. In a disaster, treatment may not be an option, leading to fatal complications. 

Similar to how federal funds do not pay for diapers, no international disaster relief for diapers exists. The Texas Diaper Bank fills this ignored gap by providing these healthcare products through our Disaster Relief program.
