The Hygiene Bank

I love this project and I think you might too!

The Hygiene Bank is a non-profit community initiative that is in the process of charity registration. The organisation provides toiletries, beauty, grooming and hygiene essentials to people who can’t afford them. I met the founder,Lizzy recently, who explained to me that she felt no one should have to choose between washing or to feeding their children. Compelled to do something she put out a plea for toiletries and grooming/beauty essentials to her friends on WhatsApp. This went viral and donations flooded in. The reaction was overwhelming and within a few weeks, The Hygiene Bank was born.
