A total 70 girls are attending Girl Guides Camp and learning important lesions on the growth of a girl. In one of our discussions with our Senior Nurse, the camp leaders and the older girls, we have realized that these particular girls were having challenges in dealing with their monthly cycle because of difficulty in accessing appropriate materials for sanitary needs. Some of the girls have gone to use unhealthy scraps of fabric which pose a great risk in developing infection, leading to disease and may also lead to the many forms of low self-esteem. The team in Zimbabwe says “We therefore plead for help for the girls for the provision of sanity wear. Thank you for the resolute support for the girl child.” It has been made clear that this is a priority and we are looking at solutions.
