    Story

    Most of us hate it when it’s our time of the month, the cramps, the mood swings, the headaches are just some of the things we have to deal with. Young girls and women in Ghana not only have this to deal with, they also have to use unhygienic rags that they wash and reuse. They also have to face embarrassment of having to wash the rag, blood is not easy to wash out, imagine the embarrassment of having your bloodstained rag sitting out to dry!

    Let’s help restore their dignity, let’s take away at least a decade worth of embarrassment from them.

    How? It’s easy, by gifting them a pair of menstrual cups! The cups we hope to buy are made of silicone and can be used for ten years. 10 years of no rags, 10 years of hygiene and 10 years of not worrying if they will leak.

    Aswell as this we will be educating the women to insure they understand they will not lose their virginity by using a menstrual cup. It is still believed by using tampons or menstrual cups you will lose your virginity as it breaks the hymen. This is not true. Education is essential for young girls so they are able to live an easier life and stop using rags.

    Can you help with this essential gift to our sisters in Ghana?

    Please donate so we can help as many sisters.

    We have a direct contact in Ghana so 100% of donations will be used.
