Summary

Hurricane Maria has devastated Puerto Rico. This fund will provide feminine hygiene items at no cost to our partner agencies, who are recovering and rebuilding. When we think about disaster recovery, we tend to think about hunger, homelessness, and clean water. Feminine hygiene items are an overlooked, yet crucial, basic need. All women deserve to be clean, dry, and healthy.

Challenge

Women living in extreme poverty around the world have to choose between food & personal hygiene items. Hurricane Irma has compunded this situation in Puerto Rico. Our partner agency, The Rebecca Foundation, is working diligently to assist the most vulnerable women, and they struggle to find enough funding and supplies to help these women.

Solution

Through provision of reusable, sanitary feminine hygiene items, dignity will be restored to women survivors of the hurricanes.

Long-Term Impact

As our partner organizations in Puerto Rico continue to have their personal care needs solved, they are able to save funds and plan for future improvements in their care. This can mean adding educational programs, offering better healthcare, improved quality of food (more protein!) - all steps that set these women up for long term survival and productive members of society.
