Global Menstrual Hygiene Day 5-28

Thursday, May 28, 2015

For about 5 days out of every 28 days.....every healthy woman has a menstrual period.

Some of us have pain and discomfort, some have no sanitary supplies to help them manage the flow.
some of us have to stay home and hide until it is over. This disrupts school, and work.
Shares a vision: To create a world in which every woman and girl can manage her menstruation in a hygienic way – wherever she is – in privacy, safety and with dignity.

Personally, I partner with Days for Girls to sew hygiene 'kits' which come in a cute bag and can last up to 3 years in helping to manage the flow so that GIRLS CAN STAY IN SCHOOL.

    I know the pain and unfortunately, I have to work through the pain. I am hoping with losing the weight, the pain will go away since I know what is causing the pain,

    I am late in reading this; however, I am already praying for clear guidance as to what my part in helping is to be. To be quite frank, until reading this blog, I had never considered what some females face with that concern.

    emoticon most sincerely for bringing the need to my attention.

    In Nigeria, when SIMair (our mission airplane service) would fly low over the school where Dad taught before landing at the airport (grassy field)...we children would frantically ride our bikes the 3 miles out to see the plane and hope to get there before it took off again! .... I especially remember one time when I beat the boys to the air port.! Go Girl Power!
    When I got home I had abdominal pain and realized my mensis had started...such deflated, crushed, it can't be true feelings.
    Yes, that was my first period. I was 11 and NOT ready to be a lady.
