19th December 2018- Unfortunately, due to unforeseen circumstances, The Unmentionables have had to withdraw their operations in Greece. We have worked really well together over the past couple of years funding several bulk buys of underwear. We’re looking at how we can continue with much needed underwear supplies in Greece.
How Do They Help?
The Unmentionables is an organisation that’s works to provide dignity to displaced people by providing a variety of personal hygiene essentials such as underwear, feminine and intimate hygiene products, sexual health products, and family planning related education.
Their work is based in Greece, Turkey and Uganda, and we will focussing our support for the team and their operation in Greece.
Chios has been one of the main entry points for refugees in Greece and the island has struggled to cope. The island has 2 main camps, and The Unmentionables had based their distribution centre in the Souda camp.
More recently they have opened a resource centre in Athens. An inspiring space that provides a whole host of services, information and learning for refugees in the city.
The team work to ensure that peoples needs are met in a private, safe and culturally adapted environment.
How Do We Collaborate?
We will be supporting The Unmentionables by providing funding to allow the purchase of necessary items. Our focus has been on bulk buys of underwear for distribution in refugee camps in Greece. Keep your eyes out for our “pounds4pants” fundraisers!
