In May we were very lucky to receive a wonderful donation from Tena. Their donation of a palette of ladies pants will be distributed to all of our projects and then our community partners around Ireland. It is donation like these and those by the Irish public that allow us to continue to help people in hygiene poverty.
The Hygiene Bank Galway held a webinar with The Irish Centre for Human Rights on the issue of period poverty, with speakers from Any Time of the Month, Plan International and Homeless Period Ireland. Úna Reynolds worked with three LLM students from the Centre to research period poverty as an issue of human rights and gender equality. The report published by the three students can be found here.
This month The Hygiene Bank Galway received 153Kg of product donations.
Due to the continued and amazing support of the public The Hygiene Bank Galway was able to distribute 108Kg of hygiene products to community partners across Galway helping those in need.
Thank you to all those helping us across Ireland we couldn’t do what we do without you.
This month The Hygiene Bank Dublin received 337Kg of product donations. This unwavering support allowed the Hygiene Bank Dublin to distribute 335kg of products to it’s community partners across Dublin.
Our newest drop off point is McCabes Pharmacy in the Pavillions shopping centre in Swords. It’s great to have another northside location!

We will be working with SCOOP to help provide hygiene products for those living in Direct Provision.
