SK High Students Receive AFRIpads

Many African girls stay out of school because they don’t have sanitary pads. Kulanu congratulates Kulanu volunteer Lorne Mallin of Vancouver, BC, who raised funds from the University Women’s Club in Vancouver to buy re-usable Afripads for the girls who live in the hostel (dorm) at Semei Kakungulu High School. SK High,the Abayudaya high school, serves Jewish, Christian, and Muslim students. Leaa wrote: 

We humbly take this grateful opportunity to thank the administration for providing us with the sanitary pads which have made us comfortable in our study. Actually we have seen that this type of pad has more advantages than those which we have been using. They do not waste a lot of money because we can use them for a longer time than the ones we have been using. Furthermore, they also help to gather blood very well than those we have been using, because some of us have heavy periods. The new ones do not expose blood into our clothes as the others. On behalf of the [students] we thank you for what you have done for us.
