NEEDS ASSESSMENT TEAMS

By asking refugees directly what their needs and preferences are for underwear, feminine hygiene, and intimate health products the unmentionables ensures no products go to waste or make refugees uncomfortable.

 

INFORMED PURCHASING & LOCAL ECONOMY BENEFITS

 

All of our purchasing and in-kind donation partners are informed by the wants and needs of the refugees we serve. We purchase all our underwear from in-country or regional vendors to ensure direct benefits to the local economy.

 

COMFORT & SENSITIVITY WHILE DISTRIBUTING HYGIENE PRODUCTS

 

Gender and cultural sensitivity are essential for distribution. By creating gender specific ‘red tents’ where individuals ‘shop’ to select their underwear and intimate products the unmentionables is able to give both privacy and individual agency back to refugees.
