HYGIENE PRODUCTS GIVE CHILDREN CONFIDENCE FOR SCHOOL
Gifts of shampoo, shower gel, bars of soap and other hygiene products are especially useful to low-income families such as that of nine-year-old Edlira and her younger brother who live in a poor district of Tirana, Albania’s capital city.
That’s the view of Besa Shapllo who has spent many years running a community development project which benefits women and children in Bathore.
“Despite her disadvantages in life, Edlira tries really hard to do well at school,” Besa says. “And as children get older it’s important to their confidence that they can present themselves clean when they mix with others in class.
“Everything in the boxes is helpful to families like these. Parents are always pleased to see their children receive some warm clothes.”
