Addressing the most urgent hygiene needs: supporting women and mothers living in street situations


French and migrant women, often with children, represent more than 17% of the people living in street situations in Paris and the Ile de France. The poverty of these women is multidimensional.

This extreme precariousness has been further exacerbated by the COVID-19 crisis.


FXB in action

The lack of hygiene faced by these women and children has a direct influence on the deterioration of both physical and mental health. Since 2018 and in order to address the most urgent needs in terms of hygiene, FXB France, in partnership with ADSF (Agir pour la Santé des Femmes), has been distributing essential baby hygiene products (diapers and wipes), as well as sanitary napkins for mothers.

Women in street situations, already very fragile, will be the first victims of the damage that COVID-19 will leave in its wake. We are therefore working on the project to adapt our proven VillageFXB poverty reduction model to the context of these women and their children in order to strengthen their overall capacities and achieve sustainable economic empowerment.

We are looking for partners to support us in this project we would like to launch in 2021. 

Our ongoing programs

The lack of hygiene degrades the physical and mental health of women in street situations. In order to alleviate the most urgent needs, FXB organizes the distribution of hygiene kits during marauds in social hotels.


Having access to something, ultimately as basic as sanitary napkins, is a great relief and makes me feel more dignified.


Mission impact

Since the beginning of its programs, FXB France has impacted the lives of more than 300 women and their children in precarious situations living in the Île-de-France region.
