"I'm the sole provider, they deserve the world, to feel that I am failing them, I can't give them what I want to... I don't want them to be looked differently, but people look at me, I feel it, and that's an added pressure."

Dave*, parent living in hygiene poverty

We believe that everyone deserves to feel clean. Give a family like Dave's the basic essentials they need today.

It is simply unacceptable that today, in 2024, your neighbours, your colleagues, your friends cannot afford to keep themselves, their clothes and their homes clean.

Your gift will enable us to provide basic hygiene essentials – toothpaste, nappies, shampoo – to people in your local community pulled into hygiene poverty. Join us to help end hygiene poverty, once and for all.
