Hygiene Packs for Syrian Refugee Women

by Global One 2015 Vetted since 2016 Site Visit Verified

Summary

Millions of refugee women are currently living in dire conditions in camps without basic everyday essentials like food, clothes and warmth. For these refugees, being a woman means that they are also deprived of feminine hygiene products to manage their period, which adds to the hardship. Global One is providing essential hygiene kits complete with a menstrual cup/pack of sanitary towels, soap and shampoo to female Syrian refugees.

Challenge

After being forced to flee their homes, Syrian women are often left with no choice but to live in camps without essential hygiene products and appropriate spaces for sanitation. Agencies working within refugee camps may not be culturally sensitive, particularly in the case of feminine hygiene. As a result, girls continue to miss out on education due to the absence of sanitary products.

Solution

This project seeks to relieve the burden for women refugees in camps in Lebanon and IDP camps in Syria in accessing feminine hygiene products. We work with local organisations to identify the refugee camps in which there is the most need and then distribute hygiene kits, which include a menstrual cup/pack of sanitary towels, soap, shampoo, underwear, toothbrush and toothpaste.

Long-Term Impact

This project will use recommendations from research we have conducted during which women were asked for insights into how their water, sanitation and hygiene (WASH) needs are being met within the camps. The results of this research will yield recommendations that can be shared with relief agencies on how to adequately address the WASH needs of female refugees within camps.
