Boys wears the body of a girl for a day- REF Menstrual Hygiene Campaign.

 

Tomorrow –28th May is World Menstrual Hygiene Day.  Boys & Men team up with us in creating awareness on “Menstrual Hygiene Campaign”-Everybody’s Business. This movement is popularly called Project Red Alert. It’s designed to support and educate women and girls in need of menstrual hygiene products and also employing solutions to help females gain quick access to female hygiene products in times of emergency. 

Boys and  Men are raising their voices for every female including that girl who is voiceless, vulnerable, underprivileged…

That girl who knows nothing about her body because she has no education.

That girl who can’t speak out because the society see’s “Period” as a Taboo.

That girl child who is very sick because she’s been exercising poor menstrual practices through the use of old rags and tissue paper to control her period.

That girl who needs help!

That girl who is absent from school because in her school, there isn’t toilet to help her manage her period.

That Nigerian mother who leaves for market to sell fish every morning and comes home to her kids at night, not one toilet is found in the market.  

That girl child who wears one single sanitary pad  round the clock even though the description says; “to be worn and disposed within 7-8 hours” because the rate of 1 pack of sanitary pad is overly rated and is unaffordable for the common girl.

That girl child who  is currently infected with genital disease, Urinary Tract Infection… due to poor menstrual hygiene.

That Girl, needs you and I. Click here to participate in this survey/campaign

Impact of Small Donations

  • When considering poverty in the developing world, many people feel deep sorrow but conclude that there is nothing we can do. The scale of poverty is immense and we seem powerless to stop it. Such despair is understandable, but the facts tell a very different story. While poverty is indeed extreme and widespread, it is easy to forget just how many people there are in the developed world, and how powerful our pocket change can become when pooled together.
  • When giving to REFoundation, the size of your donation directly correlates with the number of people you are able to help. But you don't have to be a millionaire to make a significant difference; even small donations have the potential to drastically improve an individual's quality of life.
