In the quarter under review, GlobalGiving was affected by the COVID-19 lockdown however it managed to partner with the Bulawayo Junior City Council on their initiative to help vulnerable women and girls with access to sanitary wear on the realization of the soaring prices of pads which made them unaffordable for people from humble backgrounds. The initiative ran under the theme; “I bleed by nature, you help me by choice” and it called on well wishers to assist in cash and in form of sanitary wear. The Hope for a Child in Christ GlobalGiving team saw it fit to partner in the initiative since it is inline with their mandate of helping girls have access to sanitary wear thus on the 6th of July the team handed over sanitary wear to the Junior Council for donation to the underprivileged. The team managed to purchase 2 boxes of Nina pads though it was ideal to buy more, however the funds constraints restrained the team from purchasing more towards the initiative as it helps in enabling the girl child to have a high self esteem. During the handover ceremony, both parties discussed on sustainable measures that could be used in a bid to guard against the dependency syndrome on sanitary wear and the members of the junior council proposed that they would work with organizations that produce reusable sanitary wear. The HOCIC team encouraged the Junior Council to also conduct teachings on cleanliness and hygiene to guard against the people assisted from getting infections, the HOCIC GlobalGiving team also offered to assist, funds permitting with the acquisition of reusable sanitary wear.
