Many women and young Kenyan girls who live in extreme poverty conditions don’t have access to basic hygiene products such as sanitary pads, due to their elevated costs. In order to protect themselves, they use old sheets and blankets, and even leaves from the trees. Because of this problem, many young girls don’t go to school during their menstruation, which can have severe repercussions in their academic development and education.


Distribuição de Pensos Higiénicos

Besides the obvious consequences in terms of health and hygiene, we believe this is also a question of dignity. Therefore, every year, ADDHU distributes more than 3,000 packs of sanitary pads to young girls and women from the slums, the IDP camps of Naivasha, as well as the rural area of Kisii. These sanitary pads are donated by a Portuguese company (Renova), and also collected through some street campaigns and with the help of our supporters and volunteers.
