WARWICKSHIRE AND SOLIHULL BLOOD BIKES
Here at Warwickshire and Solihull Blood Bikes, we believe that access to personal hygiene products for children and young adults should not be a privilege. Our extensive work as emergency blood bikers puts us directly in contact with people living on and below the poverty line who often can't afford personal hygiene products for themselves and their families. This is why we have decided to launch our Practical Present Festive Drive to help and support our communities.
What is Hygiene Poverty?
It can be shocking to learn in this day and age that many young adults, children and vulnerable people are unable to afford basic hygiene products.
This type of poverty can be embarrassing, not only to address, but for the person living this way. It can also affect physical health, mental health, confidence and lead to social isolation or bullying.
We're not hiding from this issue, and just like our emergency medical transport work, we are committed to making a difference and tackling this head-on.
Let's do this together.
