Case study: Improving health and wellbeing

"The dignity kit has really helped me. The pads are cloth, the environment in now clean and I am clean." Doku, Northern Kenya.

Doku lives in a refugee camp in Northern Kenya. She had to suffer with the monthly struggle of having a period with no sanitary products, and no means of keeping clean. She would use pieces of cloth as a sanitary pad, but they leaked and left stains on clothes, beds and chairs.

CAFOD supplied 500 period packs to women living in refugee camps and taught the women the importance of keeping clean and not sharing. Doku and her sisters have all benefitted, with better hygiene and the confidence that each month will no longer pose a problem.
