The BGR Hospice Kit is a collection of medical/hygiene supplies placed in a 5-gallon, heavy-duty plastic bucket with a sealable lid that will provide assistance to caregivers and quality of life to homebound, terminally ill patients.

Kit items will make the caregivers’ tasks much easier; but more importantly, will ease the suffering of the ones affected by the illness.

Baptist Global Response (BGR) cares about people and wants to connect people who care with people in need! Through The Bucket Project: Hospice Kits, BGR has involved churches, groups and individuals all over the U.S. in meeting the critical needs of people overseas who are in the last stages of terminal illness.

Who is BGR?
Baptist Global Response (BGR) is the Southern Baptist international disaster relief and  community development organization with a heart for helping people in need. BGR connects people in need with people who care.

The “people in need” are those suffering from acute problems such as disasters, wars, epidemics, etc. as well as chronic ones including poverty, hunger, poor health, etc.

The “people who care” are Southern Baptists who want to be involved in making a signifcant difference in the lives of needy people worldwide.


How Do These Bucket Items Help?  

 

 


 

See the description of how each item packed in the bucket will help such as:

Toothbrushes and Toothpaste: Toothbrushes are a luxury in many of the locations where these kits are used. Many use twigs from trees or rags to clean their teeth. For someone who is not able to brush their own teeth, a toothbrush and toothpaste greatly assists their caregivers in providing proper oral hygiene. Soft bristle toothbrushes are especially needed for those with mouth ulcers.
