Give the gift of dignity
When crisis occurs, people’s lives change in an instant. Death, injury, displacement, and the destruction of infrastructure and institutions affect entire communities as a result.
When fleeing from war or escaping disaster, there is little time to think of taking anything but the clothes on your back. Too often, in the wake of crisis, the unique needs of women and girls are ignored or simply forgotten in response efforts and women and girls are left without the basics. We won’t tolerate this.
UN Women works to ensure that when crisis hits, women and girls have the essentials they need by providing dignity kits, which include sanitary pads, soap, toothbrush, toothpaste, underwear to restore their sense of dignity and a torch to help keep them safe.
Just £15 can provide a dignity kit for a woman or girl in a crisis. And we’ll send you a free printable card that you can give to your loved ones.
Give a really meaningful gift this Christmas season, and please support our work now.
