Throughout every year, it is our mission to share part of our revenues to our community through various local and international organisations. We want to get involved and contribute, no matter how small we are, to see the change we want in the world, for us and for the future generation."

MARCH 2024 IS INTERNATIONAL WOMEN'S MONTH

UN Women - International Women's Day 2024

Time is running out. Gender equality remains the greatest human rights challenge. Investing in women is a human rights imperative and cornerstone for building inclusive societies. Progress for women benefits us all.

 Gender equality is not only a basic human right, but its achievement has enormous socio-economic ramifications. In a world facing multiple crises that are putting immense pressure on communities, ranging from geopolitical conflicts to soaring poverty levels and the escalating impacts of climate change, achieving gender equality is more vital than ever. Ensuring women’s and girls’ rights across all aspects of life is the only way to secure prosperous and just economies, and a healthy planet for future generations.

 Empowering women fuels thriving economies, spurring productivity and growth. By investing in women, we can spark change and speed the transition towards a healthier, safer, and more equal world for all.

Investing in women and championing gender equality turbocharges a future where everyone in society can thrive, creating a world of boundless opportunity and empowerment for all.

 This March 2024, we celebrate International Women's Month. Join us in championing gender equality and empowering women by investing in women.  Peaches&Creme is donating a portion of our sales during the month of March 2024 to UN Women. 

 UN Women is the global champion for gender equality, for women and girls. It is the UN organization delivering programmes, policies and standards that uphold women’s human rights and ensure that every woman and girl lives up to her full potential.

Donate to ICRC - Israel - Gaza Conflict

 

During 2024, Peaches&Creme WILL CONTINUE TO SUPPORT those who are affected by the conflict in Gaza.

We started this initiative in October 2023 and we will continue donating part of the proceeds of our sales during 2024 to ICRC to help those civilians, including babies and children, suffering as a result of the rising conflict and violence in the region. 

People caught in rising violence in Israel and Gaza urgently need our help. The continued escalation in fighting is putting lives at risk. Help us support ICRC to help protect and save lives.

The hostilities that broke out Saturday 7 October 2023 are at a level that we have not seen in many years. They have the potential to cause even more suffering to civilians on both sides. As deadly fighting between Israel and Hamas intensifies, so too does a dire humanitarian crisis in the area.

Hundreds have been killed and thousands injured in Israel and Gaza after Hamas launched unprecedented attacks on Israel Saturday. Subsequent airstrikes have overwhelmed local hospitals, and it is estimated that more than 180,000 people are displaced within the Gaza strip,  one of the most densely populated areas on Earth.

The ICRC has been present in Israel and the occupied territories since 1967. As a neutral, independent, humanitarian organization, the ICRC visits detainees in Israeli and Palestinian places of detention. We also help improve access to essential services like water and electricity in Gaza and support livelihood projects throughout the occupied territories. 

Our support today can make a life-saving difference – protecting and saving the lives of victims of armed conflict and violence. Find out how you can donate directly here.
