Women's Safety and Wellness Kits
$80 can provide essential hygiene, clothing and safety materials for four women who’ve lost their homes and belongings to disaster and war, helping them protect themselves from further indignity and harm. Refugees arrive in places like Kenya’s camp in Dadaab with absolutely nothing. They’re suddenly thrown into the reality of living in close quarters with tens of thousands of others; privacy ceases to exist. Women are especially vulnerable to harm, including sexual assault. We help ease the insecurity of life in these camps by providing critical, even lifesaving supplies to women: clothing and sandals; a bucket, soap and other hygiene items; and a flashlight and whistle so women can call for help if they are in danger.
