Soap is a simple thing that a lot of people take for granted. But for homeless people, a simple bar of soap can make a big difference.
According to the National Health Care for the Homeless Council, homeless people typically live 28 fewer years than those who live in homes. And a lot of that is due to the lack of access to basic sanitation necessities, which can prevent certain infections and illnesses.
But while there have been charities for years aiming to feed, clothe, and provide shelter to homeless people, necessities like soap have gone overlooked.
