Morna’s story

I’m turning 60 this year and instead of presents, I would like to support Smalls For All. Smalls for All® is a Scottish charity which collects and distributes underwear to help adults and children in Africa and the UK.

In Africa, we help those living in orphanages, slums, IDP (internally displaced persons) camps and schools, as well as those in hospitals suffering from medical conditions like obstetric fistula. While people living in western society tend to have easy access to underwear and take it for granted, in many more remote or poorer parts of Africa, that’s far from the case. Underwear is a luxury that isn’t easily available and, if it is, many people just can’t afford.

Giving pants and bras may seem like a small thing, but it can make a life-changing difference. For example, having pants can help teenage girls complete their education without having to miss school each month during their period.

All funds raised will be passed to the charity irrespective of whether my target is reached, not reached or exceeded.

Smalls for All

Smalls for All® is a charity that collects and distributes underwear to people in Africa and the UK who can’t afford or can’t get any.

Giving pants and bras may seem like a small thing, but it can make a life-changing difference. For example, many teenage girls miss out on valuable days of schooling each month, and women miss days of work, because having no pants means they're forced to stay at home during their period. Men need pants too of course, with requests coming from, for example, homeless charities in the UK and hospitals in Africa. So every pair of brand new pants we’re able to provide is guaranteed to help give someone back their dignity at the very least.

In Africa, we help those living in orphanages, slums, IDP (internally displaced persons) camps and schools, as well as those in hospitals suffering from medical conditions like obstetric fistula or who need to be fitted with prosthetics or orthotics. In the UK we help charities that support the homeless as well as, for example, refuges and school uniform banks.

We’ve grown dramatically over the last few years and always need to raise funds to support the work we do. For example, to cover running costs such as rent and electricity. We’re indebted to each and every person who makes a contribution to support the work of Smalls. Without your generosity and kindness we wouldn’t be able to carry on.

Smalls for All is a registered charity in Scotland. Charity number SC041689​.
