Some additional things to consider when deciding what to pack...

Hygiene Products... 

Toothbrush Holders & Soap Holders. Some children live in housing with dusty conditions or no floors. 

Face cloths. Some children live in very poverty stricken locations this type of item is a luxury.

School Supplies...

Pencils, Pens etc... In some countries, these items are a luxury also and children cherish them.

Personal Notebooks and Diaries... Some children do not have these kind of items to write their thoughts and secrets in.
