WGEF

HEALTHY PERIODS INITIATIVE

Our donations funded HPI, which addresses the challenges women in Gulu face regarding menstrual health. To deal with the lack of products, WGEF purchased a feminine-product manufacturing unit and trained young mothers to produce affordable, safe sanitary pads for women and girls in the community. In 2017, WGEF distributed 123,000 packs or nearly 1 million pads to women and girls, and delivered 12,000 packs to three refugee settlement camps each month.
