Total underwear collected 763,597
Congratulations to Janette Shearer, winner of the July lottery.
Since the last Talking Pants, we’ve supplied a further 6,170 pairs of new pants and bras to four organisations who will make sure your donations get to those in need.
Children of the Nora Docherty Primary School in Chiluzi, Malawi, will receive new pants thanks to the Nora Docherty Charitable Foundation. Chifundo UK will be distributing new pants and bras in August to very financially challenged girls at Blantyre Urban Schools and Orphanages in Malawi. Chifundo UK will be working with Gift of the Givers Foundation, a major relief organisation, who will be collaborating with the school staff and distributing the underwear, ensuring it goes to appropriate girls. 100 pairs of new pants are on their way to widows and orphans affected by HIV in Kagera, Tanzania, thanks to The Tumaini Fund. And we’ve given 1,700 pairs of new pants to Days for Girls UK for their reusable feminine hygiene kits which will be distributed to various parts of Africa.
