If you have seen the recent coverage, children in african countries are continuing to experience hard survival conditions that could affect their entire lives. It’s unimaginable to see young girls missing school and women missing work rending them unable to provide for their families due to lack of sanitary napkins when they are on their cycle, rendering them helpless. The most affected being the children. In fact, according to UNESCO worldwide, 131 million girls are out of school — and 100 million of those are girls of high school age. And while there are many reasons for this, periods play a major role.
In some cases, girls simply don’t have access to sanitary products. In others, they face discrimination and stigma during their periods. In others still, they do not have educational resources to inform them about safe, sanitary hygiene practices.
Also, medical facilities and infrastructure have completely been shut in the region. Therefore, our company together with others such as the Red Cross, the UN, and American Aid and its allies are at the forefront in reinstating human dignity and survival by providing basic needs. Kindly help us raise $11,000. This will purchase a total of 1000 kits The napkins are reusable and last about 3 years before new pads are needed. It will help empower a life.
Remember, together we can make the world a peaceful and better place.
Our goal is to purchase 1000 Days for Gils Kits at the cost of $11.00 per kit.
