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
