The women's care packages is an Afkarech iniative and first of its kind to help women in shelters in The Kingdom of Bahrain. Each box contains - a robe or towel, hair-brush, shampoo, soap/shower gel, toothbrush, sanitory products and a small washing powder. The box contains everything you may need as a woman if you find yourself without acommodation and in difficult circumstances.
Each box contained a card from the Afkarech member that packaged the box. The card had hand written notes of encouragement to help each women who recieves a care package to feel thought of, supported and encouraged.
We are extremely grateful to members of the community and local businesses who contributed to our Afkarech Care Boxes. We distributed 80+ boxes to the shelters Dar Al Aman and Dar Al Karama. We hope to continue this iniative and help more women.
