The anticipation and reality of transition into teenage years is challenging for girls. Research cites menstruation and its associated symptoms as the principal disadvantage of being a teenage girl.
Without proper sanitary products and care, the challenge is more prevalent and affects schooling and participation in sporting activities. Girls from less fortunate families are at risk of withdrawal and even could face infections.
We, the undersigned, call on the ministry of HEALTH to take action in ensuring that teenage girls from less fortunate families get monthly supplies of proper sanitary products and are educated on feminine hygiene and health.
By supporting the mission and vision of THE FEMALE ASSISTANCE PROJECT, you can make a difference.
The Provide sanitary supplies for teen girls! petition to Ministry of HEALTH was written by The Female Assistance Project and is in the category Health at GoPetition.
