What is the Human Kind store?

The Human Kind store has been created by the WHO Foundation to unite the world in support for the health of Ukraine. The Foundation has partnered with iconic artists, musicians, and athletes from Ukraine and around the world, to donate exclusive personal items that will raise money for the health and wellbeing of those affected by the war.

What is the WHO Foundation?

The WHO Foundation is an independent grant-making entity, based in Geneva, Switzerland. Affiliated to but independent of World Health Organization (WHO), the Foundation supports WHO’s efforts to address the pressing health challenges of today and tomorrow. The Foundation strengthens WHO’s efforts by creating investment opportunities to help to fund WHO’s essential work around the world, while ensuring WHO’s neutrality and independence.  To do so, the Foundation engages directly with donors, including private philanthropists and businesses and launches innovative initiatives which offer individuals a unique opportunity to support fair and equitable access to health for all. For more information on the WHO Foundation, see: https://who.foundation/en/who-we-are

What is your merchandise made from?

We use organic cotton in all our merchandise. This leads to a reduction in soil erosion, less acidification of land and water, and has less impact on global warming. All of our merchandise is 100% GOTs, Oeko Tex and PETA vegan certified, and we are proudly plastic free in our operations of merchandise production and fulfilment.

Where is your merchandise made?

The cotton used in our merch is from farms in India. The ginning and spinning mills are also based in India, as is the factory that knits, dyes, washes, cuts, sews and irons the merchandise. The merchandise is then screen-printed in the UK before being sent to the fulfilment centre.

The sourcing factories are all part of the Fair Wear Foundation. The Fair Wear Foundation is an independent organisation that works to improve labour conditions in factories.

The 8 pillars of focus of the FWF:

- Employment is freely chosen

- No exploitation of child labour

- No discrimination in employment

- A legally binding employment relationship

- Payment of a living wage

- Reasonable hours of work

- Safe and healthy work conditions

- Freedom of association
