World Menstrual Hygiene Day
FIDA Nigeria, Akwa Ibom State Branch celebrated the World Menstrual Hygiene Day with students of Adiahaobong Secondary School, Uyo and Girl’s High School Ikot Obiok, Eket. This year’s theme is: “Action and Investment in Menstrual Hygiene and Health.”
Last year FIDA Akwa Ibom went to a secondary school at Itu and most of the girls hadn’t used a pad in their life! Do you know what they use? Pieces of cloth which they wash after use and re-use. Ha! If you know what that means! Infections, which they may think it’s nothing until it damages one or two organs in their bodies.
Pads should be given free, every month in every secondary school. Our girls need it. I see people giving condoms for free but not pads. Hmmm. Sex is a choice o; menstruation is not.
Let’s do more for our children. Talk to FIDA if you want to help them through us.
Take action! Invest in their future.
