A situation that’s going from bad to worse
Making matters 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.
If living without basic hygiene products is unimaginable to you, make it unimaginable for them too.
These adverse conditions mean it is increasingly hard for many refugees such as our 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. So, we are going to deliver directly to them through NGO Rescate – personally in each camp so they don’t have to travel themselves. The first refugee settlements that will receive Across Borders Dignity Kits are Ale Askar, Al Mais, Al Sarout, Abo Majed and Al Abrar. A basic kit contain a series of items like soap, underwear, shampoo, maxi-pads, toothbrush, toothpaste… Volunteers delivering the Dignity Kits will respect all covid-19 measures, such as meeting women individually, giving each globes, mask and hydroalcoholic gel, and prior disinfection of all products prior to distribution.
Help fund The Dignity Kit!
