13 Mar Lou’s Place – International Women’s Day
Every month thousands of homeless women are placed in a crisis situation when they get their periods, from dealing with infections, to being unable to purchase sanitary supplies. Keeping safe and clean isn’t easy when you are living on the streets.
For international Women’s Day 2018 we decided to do something about it!
We contacted Lou’s Place, which is a unique community based refuge for women in crisis that are homeless, feeling isolated or needing support. After speaking with Lou’s Place we were advised that the women really appreciate makeup, but very few people donate this. The whole office worked together to gather this generous collection, consisting of sanitary products, washes and creams as well as all different types of makeup.
Today we dropped off the goodies and the women in Lou’s were very grateful for our support.
Well done everyone!
