A situation that’s going from bad to worse
Covid has impacted on their ability to move around Lebanon (further limiting their access to casual labour), and any United Nations financial aid they can receive is paid in local currency, which has been seriously devalued due to the crisis.
Living without basic hygiene products is unimaginable to us, so we tried to make it unimaginable for them too.
The situation in Lebanon is critic, with an economic, political and health crisis and its increasingly hard for many refugees such as this Syrian women to obtain basic food and health products. 60% of women have no access to underwear, and even more lack feminine hygiene products such as sanitary pads, which can lead to infections and other health problems. A basic Across Borders Dignity Kit contains a series of items like soap, underwear, shampoo, maxi-pads, toothbrush and toothpaste, lasting up to four months.
Help fund The Dignity Kit!
For the next donation we are looking for hygiene and feminine products to include in our kit. If you want to be part of this project as a donor, helping to fill the boxes, please get in touch with us at firstname.lastname@example.org
