Half of Humanity is a growing organization with the mission of sending feminine hygiene products to women in Syrian refugee camps. In the wake of the Syrian migrant crisis, we are seeing a vital time for women. If women lack the appropriate resources to handle their menstruation, they become incredibly restricted in their educational and job opportunities. We are passionate about promoting equality for women across the Middle East and North Africa. Through this simple idea, we aim to make life more comfortable for refugee women in turbulent living situations, allowing "half of humanity" to continue to live and work without restriction from menstruation. Proceeds go towards the purchase of culturally appropriate feminine hygiene products for women in Syrian refugee camps and field hospitals.
Our packages provide each woman with 28 thin sanitary napkins, baby wipes, a bar of soap, two doses of ibuprofen, a halal treat, and a handwritten note that says "You are Beautiful" in Arabic.
