Go Educate Them International (GET Int’l), an Abuja-based Non-Government Organisation (NGO) in collaboration with the House of Bellad’Or Teens Foundation, on Monday, distributed 700 sanitary pads to girls in Government Secondary School, Gwagwa in the FCT.
The distribution was part of the NGO’s activities to mark the 2023 Menstrual Hygiene Day.
The Chief Executive Officer of GET, Kate Bassey, said that menstrual hygiene includes access to sanitary products.
“Good menstrual hygiene prevents infections that could affect fertility in the long run, reduces odour and makes women and girls comfortable.”
She called on relevant stakeholders to provide free sanitary products to young girls, especially the underprivileged ones in underserved areas.
Bassey mentioned that 500 pads were given to the girls, while 200 were donated to the school for emergency menstrual flows that could start during school periods.
