With the entire world focused on humanitarian aid aimed at handling COVID19 pandemic, gender based violence in camps has increased.Unable to access proper menstrual products, many girls and women rely on crude improvised materials like newspapers, old old rags which can be dirty and banana leaves all which are unhygienic, ineffective and uncomfortable to use to use as they seek to provide solution to this.
