Lindex donates 119 000 euro to HERhealth

For the second year in a row Lindex highlighted International Women´s Day by donating 119 000 euro of the sales from March 8th to HERhealth – an initiative for increased knowledge about health and access to health care among female textile workers.

It feels very good to highlight International Women´s Day like this. At Lindex we work every day to empower women around the world in different ways and HERhealth is a fantastic initiative that makes a big difference for a lot of women, says Lindex Corporate Sustainability Manager Anna-Karin Dahlberg.

HERhealth is a training program managed by BSR (Business for Social Responsibility), that provides health education and training for female textile workers. Lindex has been working together with HERhealth since 2012, in close to 20 of Lindex suppliers factories. With this year’s donation Lindex will start even more HERhealth projects in more factories.

Since the start, Lindex has reached around 22 000 female textile workers in Bangladesh, Cambodia, China, India, Myanmar and Pakistan, but the reach is believed to be much wider since many of them also share their knowledge with family, friends and neighbors.
