Millions of children and families live in poverty. Basic necessities like food, shelter, clothing, and medical supplies are often inaccessible to many people living in impoverished communities.
Cleaning out your closet can be daunting, but it can also be a powerful opportunity to give back to others. Donating clothes can significantly impact individuals and communities in need, providing not just clothing but also a sense of dignity and hope.
Homeless shelters provide a safe and comfortable environment for individuals struggling to make ends meet. Unfortunately, many shelters are not equipped enough to provide their residents with the necessary personal care items.
Education is a fundamental right and a crucial tool for personal and societal growth. However, not all children have equal access to quality education. Many face challenges preventing them from reaching their full potential.
Menstruation is particularly difficult for homeless women. Along with the everyday struggle of finding food, shelter, and basic resources, during menstruation, they also face the challenge of getting sanitary pads and the privacy to change them. Without access to menstrual hygiene products, periods can be devastating time for women experiencing homelessness.
Period poverty refers to the lack of access to menstrual hygiene products, sanitation facilities, education, or a combination of all these. An estimated 500 million people around the world suffer from period poverty.
