Since the beginning, it’s been our mission to empower, celebrate and contribute to the future of healthcare. Through our Threads for Threads initiative, we partner with incredible organizations and Awesome Humans around the globe to donate scrubs, offer free medical services and much, much more.
This year, the FIGS team and a few very Awesome Humans traveled to Ugunja, Kenya to meet our incredible partners at the Tiba Foundation and the Matibabu Foundation. We donated $500,000 to build a new operating theater and ICU at Matibabu's hospital – a piece of infrastructure that will save lives and last for generations.
Meet the Awesome Humans who helped us ensure that our impact lasted beyond one trip — by teaching students, demonstrating care techniques and helping the inspiring healthcare professionals of Ugunja create lasting change within their communities.
