Your Support Is Helping both Periods and Pandemics
By Erin Hale & Leyla Isin-Xiong - Days for Girls International
Because Periods Don’t Stop for Pandemics, our Syrian Refugee project has continued to reach girls and women in vulnerable refugee communities. And thanks to your generous support, displaced Syrian women and girls are getting much needed supplies to manage their menstruation with dignity AND protection from the COVID-19 pandemic. The following is an update on our latest work that your donations supported:
COVID-19 has not stopped the momentum of the Enterprises who have been busy sewing to complete a recent order of 2000 DfG Kits which, when fulfilled, will be added to the refugee project distributions. This will bring our total to 6480 women and girls receiving DfG Kits!
Our local Syrian women sewist have also been receiving orders from several organizations in Lebanon including Concern Worldwide and Oxfam. Between November 2019 and March 2020 These women have sold a total of 1057 Kits (in addition to the refugee project orders they are fulfilling).
Since the outbreak of COVID-19, DfG Enterprises pivoted to sewing washable, reusable masks to meet the needs in their communities. They have received orders totaling 1000 masks from local organizations and communities and are sewing these in addition to filling Kit orders and prepping to resume refugee health education training and distributions.
Your generous donations are making all of this possible. And as you can see, these amazing women are working harder than ever with funds from your donations to reach displaced and disadvantaged women and girls in Syrian refugee communities. The work we are doing at Days for Girls, in collaboration with you--our amazing donors--is needed now, more than ever. Thank you!
