    Income tax receipts available for donations of $20 and more

    The Fondation Sénégal Santé Mobile is donating menstrual pads and tampons to 100 homeless women and girls in Montreal. A one-year supply of these products has been sourced from NatraCare (www.natracare.com) and the receiving organizations are Dans la rue, Chez Doris, and Anne’s House. For most women, periods aren't particularly pleasant to put up with. For homeless women and girls, it really is a dreaded time of the month. With limited or no access to sanitary products, they are often forced to go without or improvise with unsanitary and inefficient solutions such as toilet paper, pieces of clothing and toweling.

    Feminine Hygiene Items Cost Money ... And So Does Food: Being homeless means it's a daily challenge to get the basic needs met: eating, bathing and using the bathroom. Then the menstrual period adds one extra challenge -- it's a nightmare. Because if homeless women do not manage to put together enough money for food or shelter, it is unlikely they will be able to afford sanitary pads or tampons.

  • LifePads Africa

    Many girls in Senegal miss 1 week a month of school. While on their period these girls will stay home. Menstrual pads may be unavailable or unaffordable. They do not have safe products that allow them to move around freely without soiling themselves and their clothing. The same can also be said of many village women, they may not afford to buy disposable sanitary napkins and so use makeshift home remedies that are not very absorbent or waterproof. This limits their freedom of movement. Our project LifePads Africa aims to change this situation: to give freedom of movement and empowerment to women and girls during their menstrual period. LifePads Africa will manufacture and distribute reusable washable menstrual pads for girls and women in Senegal.
