WE DON'T JUST GIVE UNDERWEAR, WE GIVE DIGNITY.

Undergarments and personal hygiene items are essential needs for all humans. However, these basics are among the most inconsistently provided items during migration crises due to worldwide cultural taboos. The Unmentionables exists to fill this gap and provide these basic necessities to displaced persons.

The items and services provided by the Unmentionables include undergarments, feminine and intimate hygiene products, sexual health products, and family-planning related education. These products and programs have the ability to empower and protect refugees from disease, infection, sexual and gender-based violence, and help provide confidence to to engage in community life.

SOMETHING AS SIMPLE AS UNDERWEAR CAN MAKE A DIFFERENCE

Asylum seekers’ hygiene needs are often overlooked. But these needs are necessary for daily life. For as little as $10 you can make a difference in the life of a refugee by providing them with a clean pair of underwear. $15 provides two pairs of underwear, or one pair of underwear and a bra. You can add a message of hope and kindness to your gift that will be translated.

 
 

73,800

We’ve supplied 73,800 intimate health products to refugees! Let’s keep that number growing and continue to spread dignity through hygiene.

SMART AID IN ACTION

THE UNMENTIONABLES IS BASED ON SMART AID PRINCIPLES

At every stage of our model the respect of the communities we serve and the normalization of refugee issues are the primary focus. Our needs assessment team asks refugee communities directly about what products they require. Partnerships are created with local vendors to benefit each community’s economy. Then, we work to ensure refugees can safely and privately choose their intimate health products, allowing each individual to decide the size, style, and type of product they prefer.

 

OUR WORK IN GREECE

We are currently working in Athens and Chios, both major hubs for asylum seekers from the Middle East and North Africa. Discover more about our work with these communities below.
