When a natural disaster strikes the normal life as most people know it becomes a dark cloud. Often we hear on news reports that there is no electricity, running water and limited access to supplies.
When we think of supplies it is generally food, water, baby items and clothing which is essential, however, no one ever talks about access to sanitary pads. Is there enough of this costly item being spread out to last the distance.
When hit by the disaster, your period doesn’t say ‘gees this isn’t a good time to arrive’, it will arrive like clock work for some. When the local store has been flooded, burnt with fire or shut down, how are women accessing sanitary products? Likely, it is the last thing on most people’s minds. When the news turns off so do we unfortunately, we return our focus back to our everyday life and until the next news report we don’t really hear much else. Once the emergency supplies have run out, then what? In some cases there is no job to go back too, the funds are limited, the list of problems go on. We are here to help!
