Smalls for All® is a Scottish charity which collects and distributes underwear to help women and children in Africa and the UK.
In Africa, we help those living in orphanages, slums, IDP (internally displaced persons) camps and schools, as well as those in hospitals suffering from medical conditions like obstetric fistula.
We operate from the UK and support people and charitable organisations working on projects in Africa who are able to transport and distribute the pants and bras we collect. Our underwear has gone to many countries in Africa, including Cameroon, Ethiopia, Gambia, Ghana, Guinea, Kenya, Madagascar, Malawi, Namibia, Rwanda, Sierra Leone, Somalia, South Africa, Swaziland, Tanzania, Uganda, Zambia and Zanzibar.
We also help charities that focus on alleviating poverty in the UK by providing them with underwear.
Because of COVID-19, Smalls suspended operations in March, shortly before lockdown began. Please hold on to your kind donations for now and we’ll let you know when we’re open again. Meantime, we hope you’re all well and keeping safe, and thank you for your pantastic support.
