For most people, choosing which underwear to wear is part of their personality or how they want to feel. For the people on the move, choosing is a kind of impossible.
Socks and boxer shorts might not seem much, but for those who migrate without access to safe routes, the lack of dry, clean or cozy underwear is not only undermining their physical wellbeing but also their mental health. New underwear gives self-esteem a much-needed lift. It gives dignity and the ability to let go of the shame to which they were once subjected.
That´s why we launch this crowdfunding campaign to distribute socks and underwear for the people who is trapped at the borders in Northern Serbia.
Yes, we know that when a person is not psychically or mentally healthy, it would take more than nice underwear to help improve the situation, but it is a good and easy step. Are you ready to help?
No Name Kitchen is an independent movement working alongside the Balkans and the Mediterranean routes to support people on their right to move seeking a better life. Our teams are based in border-crossing spots where People on the Move face the difficulties of long journeys and violent push-backs. NNK combines humanitarian and political actions to provide people with means for their self-protection, ensuring they access healthcare, food and clothes, while denouncing the abuses happening in the borders to raise awareness and advocate for a change in policy-making.
