5-28 is Menstrual Hygiene Day
Because the 'Average' woman menstruates 5 days every 28 day cycle
How important is it to you to have clean water for cleansing? privacy? safe products to use in absorbing the flow?
Thousands, yes, THOUSANDS of women in the world do not have access to these. Many girls cannot attend school during their periods.
After boarding school girls were kidnapped in Chibok, Nigeria, I began to work on the theme "Keep Girls in School".
I found this web site with patterns and began to sew hygiene kits which go all over the world to areas where disposable menstrual supplies are not available.
Money is needed for parts of the kits: zip lock bags, panties, wash clothes, soap and of course for the fabric, snaps, waterproof layer which lies in the middle of the shield. Donations made with reference to "BolivarMO Days for Girls" will help me.
