Who we are
KindNecessities is an organisation that works on a local and international level to provide the necessities that should be afforded to every woman, irrespective of circumstance. Through our local commitment to transforming the discussion and stigma surrounding female hygiene, to the sanitary items that we provide to the victims of crises - our team works tirelessly to do what we can to 'normalise' the discussion in societies deemed progressive, conservative and everything in between. Almost 29% of the 4,289,792 registered Syrian refugees between the ages of 12 and 59 in Jordan's Zaatari camp are affected by the gap in aid towards female hygiene products, resulting in the use of cloths, rags and garbage bags as sanitary pads. This means that even with their allowance provided by the UN, over 1 million women and girls are having to choose between feeding their family and purchasing sanitary items. Their health is at stake, with these women opting in to put themselves at risk of infection for their families. We want to change this by providing reusable pads at no cost to the most vulnerable in our society. Their shelter, blankets, clothes and shampoo are provided for by many charities and international organisations - their sanitary items should be too, because we believe it is just as much of a necessity for women and girls fleeing from war as it is for us back home.
100% guarantee that ALL donated funds will go into the aid and services we provide.
NO admin costs - all those involved are committed volunteers working to better the lives of our women, as well as the lives of Syrian refugee women, providing them with the basic hygiene products they need, but are in scarce supply.
Normalising the discussion
The discussion around female hygiene and what it entails are often considered somewhat of a taboo in society; in schools, at university, and in the workplace.
KindNecessities aims to not only transform the discussion, stigma and sense of embarrassment that asking for a pad or tampon entails, but to normalise it amongst boys and girls, and men and women through our services and our campaign.
Empowering them to feel more comfortable to discuss matters relating to their wellbeing and personal health
Allowing boys and men to be equally educated on what the menstrual cycle is, how they are to be managed and empathising as necessary will create not only greater comfort within relationships, but a greater understanding of each other
