Hygiene Kits

Oxfam distributes non-food items in the form of ‘hygiene kits’ to support WASH activities. For example, this could be to enable safe use of water and effective handwashing. The provision of culturally appropriate material for women to use for menstrual protection is an important consideration. Other items may also be included in accordance with available resources and community priorities.
