The pandemic disproportionately impacted women and girls, in profound and challenging ways. With upticks in gender-based violence, teen pregnancy, increases in poverty, and food scarcity, we redoubled our effort to continue addressing period poverty and menstrual health education. During lockdown, girls are most vulnerable and the support and access to sanitary supplies and information was a critical piece to combat hopelessness and isolation. We created a delivery schedule to cover as many villages as possible, ensuring women and girls continue to manage their menstrual health with dignity.
We need your help today so that we may reach more women, girls to continue strengthen and build the resilience that can weather difficult times of post COVID-19 Pandemic lock downs
