Reusable Pads - 2022

Feminine hygiene kit

We're giving this a whirl!

Girls and women are met with challenges with their monthly cycle. The cost of manufactured feminine hygiene products is prohibitive and the garbage generated can not go into the tanks of our town toilets. Usually most resort to using rags.

We have been considering piloting the use of reusable sanitary pads for some time now and we are grateful that the perfect opportunity presented itself.

Through a series of fortunate circumstances, we have ended up with 58 kits prepared by Christine Owen (with some help from her sister, Edwina Sutherland). A thanks also to Ivanna Todd and friends and PH for their roles in making this donation possible.

This pilot project will be headed by nurses from our local clinic and the teens will have educational sessions.

The kits were sent to our shipper on May 16th and it will take two months before they arrive in Dekpor. Stay tuned for updates.

We are truly thankful for the chance to give this a try!
