Meet the team behind Provision Promise
The beginning
A single dinner led to tackling a problem we never knew existed.

Shaun & Antonella became fast friends after learning they both wanted to help people in a meaningful way. After Antonella's visit to see Russell, she learned that hygenic items were not subsidized. The rest is history.
