This gift covers a range of products that no one should go without, for example, shower gel, toothbrushes, toothpaste and shampoo. Simple actions like showering and brushing your teeth can help people feel better about themselves - while also giving a sense of normality and routine.
Thousands of refugees and people seeking asylum are living in poverty across the UK and lack the funds to buy some of the basics - including hygiene products.
Henry originally from Nigeria, is a regular at the Hackney Destitution Centre in East London. He receives monthly hygiene packs here, containing razors, shaving foam and dental health products. But for Henry, the benefits are beyond hygiene - he values the social aspect, too.
“Coming here and getting these things is very, very helpful for me. If I couldn’t wash my teeth in the morning, I wouldn’t be able to sit and talk with people.”
Gifts of kindness are changing the lives of refugees and people seeking asylum across the UK, thanks to you.
