Kisumu Huduma Centre and the Kenya Red Cross Society Kisumu branch joined hands to organize and promote an important event on Menstrual Hygiene Management across Kisumu County. This collaborative effort aimed to raise awareness and address the stigma associated with menstruation while fostering a positive attitude towards periods. The event, organized annually on the 28th day of the fifth month, targeted vulnerable women and girls in the community.
Menstrual hygiene management is a crucial aspect of women's health, and the event sought to break down barriers and promote open discussions surrounding menstruation. By de-stigmatizing periods, the initiative aimed to empower women and girls, ensuring they have access to the necessary information and resources to manage their menstrual health effectively.
The dedicated staff from Kisumu Huduma Centre generously donated sanitary pads and drinking water. These contributions were vital in supporting the most vulnerable women and girls who often face challenges in accessing menstrual hygiene products.
