There are over 1 million documented Syrian refugees in Lebanon, making up 1/4 of the total population. Menstrual health is an often over-looked need when providing aid to refugees. Women require sanitary pads every single month. When given disposable products, she will once again need them in 28 days. Many refugees simply cannot afford to purchase pads month after month.
Days for Girls Lebanon will provide refugees with reusable, dependable, cloth menstrual kits. We have established a sewing center for local women to join our team and expand our production and reach.
Days for Girls kits are designed to last! This will allow woman and girls the security of not having to purchase pads or resort to poor, unhealthy solutions. We also provide health education in every distribution so that they gain the knowledge and education to promote good health and dignity.
