Help Refugees with The Unmentionables’ Gift Guide

Help Refugees with The Unmentionables’ Gift Guide

Emileigh Clare, The Unmentionables' Public Relations Intern. 

Looking for a different type of gift this holiday season?

Think about giving dignity.

Underwear, undergarments and personal hygiene items are among the most inconsistently provided items during migration crises. 81 percent of refugees do not have consistent access to clean underwear. Lack of access to sexual and reproductive health (SRHR) products and SRHR education are also barriers to addressing the prevalence of sexual assault, harassment, rape, and early marriage in forcibly displaced communities around the world.

Check out our gift giving guide to help give dignity to refugees and displaced people around the world. Gifts to The Unmentionables will also be used to stock The Unmentionables Resource Center in Athens, to open in January 2018.
