The Wilmat Development Foundation needs your help!
We are working hard to help our women and girls to manage their periods hygienically and with dignity, without fear of shame or stigma. In our rural and remote areas, we are helping by providing access to clean water for washing, private changing areas and waste disposal facilities. We are also working to include provision for sanitary items in our distribution packages of food and essential items.

Periods Don’t Stop for a Pandemic

Some things carry on regardless of epidemics, and for many women and girls in poor and remote areas, access to essential services and basic hygiene supplies for their monthly periods has become almost impossible. Even before the current crisis, it was estimated that up to 5 million each day have difficulty accessing things that many of us take for granted, such as adequate sanitary products, clean water for washing and private places to change. Adding to this the feelings of shame and embarrassment, the high cost of menstrual products, and the fact that in many girls are considered to be old enough for marriage once their periods start, it is no wonder that studies show a correlation between periods and school drop-out rates.

How will the funds be used?
The funds will be used to purchase sanitary kits for women from rural areas of Uganda. Each Full set sanitary kit costs between UGX 30,000 to UGX 50,000. Our initial aim is 1000 sanitary kits, but the more money we raise, the more kits we can purchase!

How soon do we need these funds?
Periods don't stop for a pandemic. As the COVID-19 pandemic continues, it's important that we get these kits to the young women as soon as possible.

Organizations such as ours work mainly off of donations from our lovely supporters. We are so grateful for your help with providing essential hygiene services and basic hygiene supplies to women in need!
