As the world commemorated World Menstruation Day today, a group of activists in Kayole marked the day by issuing health packages to both boys and girls from low income families.

The Nivalishe Pad Group members from Kayole Justice Center say that they chose to issue health packages for both boys and girls to help incorporate the boy child in the awareness campaign for sanitary pads.

Maryanne Kasina a member of the group says accessibility of sanitary towels to girls in the slums still remains a challenge.

The girls’ package they issued today contains a packet of sanitary towels, underpants and soaps while the boy’s package contains boxers and soaps.

Mary Ann says that menstrual hygiene is natural and should be treated like sex where by every public area which has free condoms for sex,sanitary towels should be present.
