In 1996, SCI members delivered mosquito nets and other medical supplies to villagers in remote areas of Namibia. This inaugural step started SafariCare. SCI and SCIF, like so many organizations, put forth enormous effort each year to help improve the quality of life throughout the world.
Since 2005, participants (affectionately referred to as our “Blue Bag Brigade”) in this program have reported taking 1,331 “Blue Bags” overseas. Shipping these bags would cost hundreds of dollars apiece, and filling each bag would cost anywhere from $150 to $300. However, they are filled by chapters or individual members with medical, educational, hygiene and other relief supplies, clothing and toys, which are then taken to remote areas of the world by hunters who have planned hunts in these regions. The supplies are delivered directly to villages, clinics, schools and orphanages for villagers, doctors, teachers and caregivers to utilize.
