YOU have made it possible for thousands of women to have access to clean, comfy undies. Thank you.
Imagine being homeless, with nowhere to go to have a shower, to brush your teeth or even speak to a doctor. Now imagine getting your period and not having access to a change of underwear, or even a sanitary pad or tampon.
We recently partnered with The Living Room, a charity based in the heart of Melbourne, and the only service of its kind, aimed at helping those at risk of or experiencing homelessness.
With over 50% of women becoming homeless due to domestic violence, it’s incredibly important that they receive support, and this is where Youth Projects comes in.
Once a month, Youth Projects hosts a Women’s Wellness Clinic, which is a safe space for women to come to shower, make calls, search for jobs and do their laundry.
As well as this, they offer support groups, free access doctors and nurses, free self-serve food, wifi, books and locker storage.
Together, and because of your support, we are able to donate thousands of pairs of cotton undies to their center, which will be given to women in need.
Once again, thank you for your support. YOU have made this possible.
