Help Refugees and Immigrants Meet Basic Needs

Summary

Often forced to leave their homes due to conflict, violence, natural disasters, human rights violations, and persecution - refugees and immigrants struggle just to survive. This project provides diapers, period products and other basic needs supplies at no cost to trusted partner agencies working with refugees worldwide. We also provide cloth products where culturally relevant as a long-lasting solution to solving hygiene needs for this population.

Challenge

Refugee families struggle to meet the basic needs due to extreme poverty and challenging life situations. Immigrants may be on the move for a variety of reasons, and access to basic needs becomes a struggle. All people deserve to be clean, dry, and healthy and our basic needs products help these families establish stability during an unstable time.

Solution

Through our partners across the world, we are helping refugee and immigrant families re-establish a foundation for a bright future. With access to basic needs, these families are able to experience clean, dry and healthy lives and pursue a live where they thrive instead of merely survive.

Long-Term Impact

As refugee and immigrant families settle into safe areas surrounded with resources from our partners, as well as supported with our hygiene products, they feel confident in pursuing self-sufficiency. These programs are enabling families to pursue and enjoy the lives they want to live.
