The first 250 bags for a conference to be held in June 2019 at Edinburgh University have been completed. The women in Malawi worked hard to get them finished before Christmas. Now they have started work on the next 250.
Chifundo UK and Chanasa Malawi have joined forces with Gift of the Givers, a large relief NGO based in Blantyre Malawi, to provide information about Menstrual Hygiene and to give school girls in rural areas and needy urban suburbs Lotus Packs so that they can have a positive experience of menstruation and not have to miss school each month.
This project is supported by US Aid.
