HYGIENE GIFT PACKS FOR "FORGOTTEN" GIRLS! THANKYOU

Life Bloom Services International initiated a pad drive that targeted girls and women from urban poor settings.  We partnered with Red Cross. The first pad drive during this Covid 19 pandemic was towards a marginalized community in Suswa called Kambi Turkana, of Naivasha Sub County, Nakuru County (Kenya), where a community of 500 people live. It’s a marginalized community that has been neglected and do not have access to services like water, electricity, schools and hospitals.   

 Through the GlobalGiving platform, Life Bloom distributed the dignity packets to 96 beneficiaries. 1Pack (12 packets sanitary towels and 4 panties) to 37 beneficiaries while the other 59 were issued 1 Pack (4 packets sanitary towel and 2 panties). The girls were educated on Menstrual Hygiene Management (MHM); how to wear sanitary towels, the duration to stay with a pad before changing, how to dispose to avoid environmental pollution and hygiene measures during menstruation. They were also educated on children rights and sensitized on building their leadership capacities to rise above their vulnerabilities to forms of sexual exploitation specifically being gifted sanitary towels in exchange of sexual favors.

 The girls and women at large were extremely happy and overwhelmed that there is an organization that considered them since they hardly get visitors. Attached is a video that clearly narrates how some of the beneficiaries did not know of sanitary towels and explained how some could use reusable clothes, mattresses pieces (which they even share), others could sit in caves during menstruation.

 

WE THANK YOU FOR YOUR GENEROUS DONATION, FROM HALF A DOLLAR TO MANY MANY DOLLARS! EVERY PENNY MAKES A DIFFERENCE, JUST HALF A DOLLAR WILL MAKE ONE GIRL FEEL PROUD OF HER WOMANHOOD!
