What if not having feminine supplies kept you isolated during menstruation? No study for DAYS. No income for DAYS. No access to hygiene… for DAYS. It happens worldwide to women in impoverished communities.
A long term volunteer had some reusable pads that a friend had made for her. They weren’t her cup of tea so she gave them to some of the Haitian women, and they loved them! There are lots of ways of making reusable menstrual supplies, but for this kit we chose the system thoughtfully developed by Days for Girls.
Here’s how to get started:
If you are interested in sending completed kits to RHFH, please email us at firstname.lastname@example.org, and we’ll give you an address of where to send them.
