Through the UK Government's partnership with Unilever, the Hygiene, Handwashing and Behaviour Change Coalition for COVID-19, the UK Government has now allocated over £26 million to provide urgent COVID-19 hygiene support to some of the world's most vulnerable people.
Large UK-based charities (organisations with an average annual income of over £10 million for the last three years) have been allocated £11 million of this overall total. Delivery partners were selected through open competition. The remaining £15 million has been disbursed through non-UK-based not-for-profit organisations and the United Nations Children's Fund (UNICEF).
