In August 2018, the FIGS team and five Awesome Humans teamed up with the amazing non-profit Foundation for International Medical Relief of Children (FIMRC) and visited Huancayo, Peru where we donated 1,500 scrubs and cared for over 300 patients.
Awesome Human and acute care nurse practitioner Danielle LeVeck joined FIGS in Peru to treat patients and donate scrubs. “You’re walking into these villages and hospitals and you’re giving people scrubs and they are so thankful for them. To feel like what you’re doing is meaningful is completely priceless.”
In October 2019, the FIGS team and seven Awesome Humans traveled to Manipur, India to donate 500 sets of scrubs and treated over 4,000 patients in three days.

THE NEW ICONS
We celebrate the do-ers. The risk-takers. The ones who inspire us to be more, do more and try more than we ever imagined. We celebrate you. THE NEW ICONS.
