MORE and more persons seem to be understanding the importance of the First Lady, Arya Ali’s Menstrual Hygiene Initiative, so much so, that she has started receiving donations by the container. According to a social media post issued by the Office of the First Lady of Guyana, a company called GH&PS has donated in excess of 3,000 boxes of Sleepy sanitary pads, while other companies such as Metro Office Supplies and Brothers Security Firm have added hundreds more.
As a result of the donations, the First Lady said that Guyana is moving closer to eradicating period poverty.
Amid the growing support to ensure all of Guyana’s girls have access to hygienic sanitary supplies while experiencing their menstrual cycle, Ali said that the work must be sustained.
“That is why your contribution, however small, is needed. For my part, I will continue to mobilise resources, both from the government and private sector, to ensure that at a bare minimum, our girls are not forced to leave school because of period poverty,” she related.
Always tell someone how you feel because opportunities are lost in the blink of an eye but regret can last a lifetime. cricketwindies.com/forum/
