Foundation for Internationa Medical Relief of Children

PROJECT HOPE (HEAD LICE outreach prevention & education)

Lola's Story......


In 2016, Pam's daughter Lola went to a clinic helping Nicaraguan refugees near San Jose, Costa Rica. The organization is called 'Foundation for International Medical Relief of Children' (FIMRC). For her Girl Scout Gold Award, Lola established a lice treatment & prevention protocol for international medical clinics, group homes, orphanages, & shelters around the world. 


As part of her project, Lola had two goals:


1. To create simple online tutorials (in the native language, if possible) so staff could continue the protocol, on an ongoing basis.


2. To create an program, asking lice professionals to donate and recycle lice combs for 'kits', to be distributed to homeless, orphanages, shelters, etc.


In the past 3 years, Pam and Lola have volunteered with homeless programs, an orphanage (NikkisPlace.org) in Chaing Mai, Thailand, and spoken to numerous PTA's, parent groups, Civic Groups (Kiwanis), and many others. While Project HOPE is not a nonprofit (yet!), we hope to inspire other lice professionals to volunteer products and services in their local communities.


If you know of an organization that could benefit from our help, please let us know.(pam@licefreekids.com).

Helping Homeless (LOTS - Life On The Streets)

The Crossing, a wonderful church in Costa Mesa, CA has a wonderful program to help homeless. Pam & Lola help checking, treating, and donating product for lice outbreaks. (Note: the loud music was from a boombox near us, we had no control over the volume, feel free to mute & read subtitles!)

 Tutorial: How To Check & Treat For Lice                             (Thai Subtitles)


This 11 minute tutorial is designed for shelters, orphanages, group homes, etc. All you need to check or treat for lice, is a lice comb. For this tutorial, all we suggest is maybe hair conditioner, to soften hair & make it easier to comb. (We hope to translate this video into Spanish & Vietnamese, etc., in the future).

We ask lice professionals to send us their used lice combs to sanitize for kits for homeless, etc.

Recycle Used Nit Combs for Project Hope

As part of her Girl Scout Gold Award (equivalent to Eagle Scout), Lola committed to establishing a 'lice comb recycling program' for head lice professionals to donate their used combs. Through our Project HOPE, we will sanitize them and put them into 'treatment kits' for homeless programs, shelters, & orphanages.
