The high street retailer, which introduced the charge in 2015, has donated the money raised from the charge to Unicef UK to help children in the midst of life-threatening emergencies.
From education, water and sanitation and child protection, H&M has contributed to Unicef’s work in countries like Ethiopia, Myanmar and South Africa.
When conflict came to nine-year-old Nyapour’s village in South Sudan, she was forced to flee with her mother to safety.
“I was very frightened by the war. I saw so many people wounded and men shooting guns, it was very bad,” she said.
Thanks to the money raised by H&M, Nyapour is attending a Unicef supported school in a safe area and says she feels safe and that her favourite subject is maths.
As part of a wider global partnership, H&M and Unicef UK have raised approximately $22 million (£17 million) for Unicef’s programmes for children since 2004.
Together the money has contributed to supporting a global effort in early childhood development and education, enabling children to get the best possible start in life.
