You are playing an essential role in providing menstrual dignity for vulnerable refugees in Lebanon. Using your generous funds through Days for Girls’Menstrual Health Equity for Women in Lebanon project through GlobalGiving, we are ensuring that women and girls have the tools they need to manage their menstruation while attending school and providing for their families. The following are our most recent advancements in menstrual equity in Lebanon.
In 2021, DfG Lebanon seamstresses produced 7,565 DfG Kits, the highest number of locally produced DfG Kits since we began in Lebanon.
We completed our 2021 partnership with UNFPA and SOS Children's Villages Lebanon, producing and packing 5,000 Kits as well as training social workers on the distribution of washable pads. These Kits will be distributed in the coming months.
We reached 100 refugees in partnership with German NGO, Hildashaus.
We participated in the Jeyetna Menstrual Health festival.
We completed a project with ReHope Korea, reaching 700 refugee women and girls.
We provided 125 Kits for Kooyrigs, an Armenian humanitarian organization.
And, we already have orders for over 1,000 Kits for 2022 and are working on sourcing bulk fabric as the supply chain has become more difficult due to the economic situation in Lebanon.
Without support from our incredible donors, we would not be able to accomplish our goal to provide menstrual equity to those in need in Lebanon. You are essential to this work! Former US First Lady Michele Obama said, "We're in this together. Because these girls are our girls. They are us. They each have the spark of something extraordinary inside of them just like our daughters - and our sons - and their fate is very much our responsibility."
