Four million people are predicted to flee to neighbouring countries if the situation in Ukraine worsens.
UNHCR is on the ground delivering aid to families who have been forced to flee their homes because of the conflict in Ukraine. Just under a million refugees have fled Ukraine as of March 2nd to neighbouring countries and that number is continuing to grow exponentially
We pride ourselves on ensuring resources are used responsibly. That’s why we can send 84 cents of every one dollar you donate directly to uprooted families, giving them hope for a brighter future. In addition, 10 cents of every dollar goes to support the implementation of our programs around the world—with only 6 cents going towards management and administrative costs.

Global Organic Textile Standards (GOTS)
An item of clothing labelled GOTS must contain a minimum of 70% certified organic fibres. Organic fibres are natural fibres grown without the use of synthetic pesticides, insecticides, herbicides or GMOs. Organic agriculture is system that better sustains the health of ecosystems, soils and people.
Standard 100 by OEKO-TEX is one of the world's best-known labels for textiles tested for harmful substances. If an item of clothing carries this label, you can be certain that every component has been tested for harmful substances and is harmless for human health.
DETOX is a campaign launched by Greenpeace in 2011 with a goal to exclude hazardous chemicals from textile production.
Better Cotton Initiative (BCI)
The Better Cotton Initiative (BCI) is a global not-for-profit organization and the largest cotton sustainability program in the world. BCI exists to make global cotton production better for the people who produce it, better for the environment it grows in and better for the sector’s future.
