Providing emergency supplies for Victorian children placed in out-of-home care is at the heart of what B4VK do. Basic clothing and necessities are what they provide to children in the community who find themselves in suddenly displaced.
Since 2015, they have supplied Victorian children with over 6,000 essentials packs.
Often, children arrive in emergency accommodation with nothing more than the clothes on their backs. This could be pyjamas, or a school uniform. Our backpacks and nappy bags are filled with essential items to help get displaced children through the first 48 hours of care. The packs include basic toiletries, clothing, pyjamas, a torch and extra love items such as soft toys, blankets and games to provide some comfort as they fall asleep in a stranger's home.
B4VK are able to provide these items thanks to generous donations from both individuals and Australian businesses.
