Your Partnership Is Providing Dignity to Girls in Lebanon during Uncertain Times
By Erin Hale | Development Associate
Thank you for your generous donations to Days for Girls’ work of bringing menstrual equity to women and girls in Lebanon. The current need for menstrual health solutions in Lebanon is great. UNICEF Lebanon recently reported that 87% of women in the country have changed their purchasing habits of menstrual supplies due to economic concerns, 76% of women are finding it difficult to even access menstrual supplies, and many simply cannot afford disposables. When faced with the choice of buying food for their families or period products for themselves, women are choosing to feed their families. With your donated funds and the help of amazing partners, we are doing all we can to fill this gap and ensure that as many women and girls as possible can have menstrual dignity.
Recently, our three Lebanon Social Enterprises joined forces and merged into one powerful group of advocates for girls. Our new “Super” Enterprise is located in North Akkar. In collaboration, our entrepreneurs are working hard to fill a number of important orders for menstrual Kits in the region. The results of their hard work include:
A completed order of 1000 Kits for Marsa Sexual Health Centre;
A completed order of 300 Kits for Concern Worldwide;
A completed order of 740 Kits for two local organizations;
Collaborating with a university in the United Kingdom for a study on washable pads in Lebanon, and filling an order of 20 washable pads for their research preparation.
The feedback we receive from those using our pads is that they work! Lasting up to 3 years, our washable pads give women and girls peace of mind, confidence and security - qualities particularly important to those living in politically and economically uncertain communities.
Thank you for your part in bringing dignity to women and girls in Lebanon.
