Right now the worst humanitarian crisis in modern times is happening. The war in Syria and neighbouring countries has forced millions of people to flee their homes. Half of them are children.
It is a tragedy that raises compassion and a will to help. People in flight are always in need of hygiene items. We have therefore decided to donate 50,000 toothbrushes.
To ensure that our aid reaches the places and people where it does the most good, we will collaborate with The Red Cross.
"In the coming weeks, 50,000 toothbrushes will be distributed by Red Cross volunteers to people displaced both in Sweden and around Europe" says Hanna Sjöström, Marketing Director at TePe. "We want to help those in need in the best way we can. Nobody can do everything but everyone can do something. "

About the Red Cross:
The International Committée of the Red Cross (ICRC) responds quickly and efficiently to help people affected by armed conflict. We also respond to disasters in conflict zones, because the effects of a disaster are compounded if a country is already at war. Emergencies are unpredictable, so our rapid deployment capability is hugely important.
