Case study: Improving health and wellbeing
"The dignity kit has really helped me. The pads are cloth, the environment is now clean and I am clean." Doku, Northern Kenya.
Doku lives in a refugee camp in northern Kenya. Every month she suffered with her period. She had no sanitary products or means of keeping clean. Instead, she used pieces of cloth as sanitary pads – but they leaked and left stains on clothes, beds and chairs.
Thankfully, CAFOD supplied 500 period packs to women living in refugee camps. Working with local experts, we’ve taught women the importance of keeping clean during their period.
Doku and her sisters have all benefitted. With better hygiene and increased confidence, their monthly periods will no longer pose a problem.
