Funds were raised to produce 1,000 reusable sanitary pads by the Days for Girls Enterprise in Toliara, Madagascar. The Episcopal Diocese of Toliara has set up a Days for Girls Enterprise in Toliara in their Women’s Centre which houses sewing machines and other necessary equipment. Many women have been trained to make these patented reusable sanitary kits and the project leader educates women and girls about menstruation health and hygiene
These sanitary pads have now been delivered to the NGO, MedAir in Antananarivo, in preparation for their crisis response to women and girls affected during the coming cyclone season as part of the emergency WASH projects that will be rolled out. School girls and local women will also benefit from the support of local awareness programs in various regions as part of the program.
At least 1,000 girls and women will be able to manage their menstrual hygiene with dignity.
