Those looking to help out and make a donation only to buy this product from the brand which will then donate a jersey headscarf on behalf of the buyer. ‘We’re committed to supplying hijab – wearing women on the frontlines with a fresh, sanitary hijab so there’s one less thing they have to worry about’, adds Elturk.
