Menstrual Hygiene Kit
- Easy to use
- Contains 10 sanitary pads
Women and girls displaced by the conflict are facing an issue they cannot avoid: monthly menstruation. Few of them remember to bring sanitary pads, but most (if not all) think the pads are irrelevant and prioritise other lifesaving items (food, water and medicine) during their escape.
It is very challenging to get clean menstrual hygiene products such as sanitary pads when fleeing conflict and women and girls are forced to use and reuse clothes or old rags. If they are lucky women will get the opportunity to secretly wash the rags, however many do not get that chance as menstruation is a taboo topic.
Women and girls are at risk of developing infections that can cause serious health complications if they do not have access to clean menstrual hygiene products.
We are supporting women and girls reproductive health needs by providing menstruation and post-partum care in the refugee situation, which can be a complicated, dangerous and embarrassing process for them in these circumstances.
We will be helping Syrian women and girls who are fleeing the conflict in Syria who lack access to simple tools that will improve their health and maintain their dignity.
The menstrual kits will be allocated to 10 midwives who are currently attending medical training in Turkey. Each midwife will receive 500 kits (together with lessons about the process of menstruation) to distributed to women and girls internally displaced by the conflict.
Non-financial contribution: distribution, training for midwives, and local administrative work
