Menstrual Hygiene Management Menstrual Hygiene Management
We Employ. We Improve Menstrual Health. We Build Women's and Girls' Network
Poor girls and women, especially those fleeing from wars as in the case with the Southern Cameroons refugees and in rural areas, struggle to get a clean piece of cloth to manage their period every month. there is a lack of awareness about menstrual health and hygiene. Living in a culture of shame and silence, they end up using poor substitutes like rags and ash, or worse they use NOTHING.
This aggravates their day to day misery around this basic need. UNMASK-Ambazonia Foundation through its "SET A STANDARD" initiative has distributed more than 5 thousand cloth pads across the southern Cameroons refugees in Nigeria and organised many awareness meetings among the refugees to sensitize them of the importance for a girl child to be confident in her community and society.
With UNMASK-ARF, and through your assistance, a program to reach out and provide reusable sanitary pads (bamboo sanitary pads) to all the girls and women is attenable.
When you donate to this program, you help women and girls in underprivileged communities get access to reusable cloth pads to manage their periods.
