Family Clinic in Daveyton raising funds to get menstrual cups for teenage girls.
Often these girls do not have the sanitary products needed while menstruating and cannot go to school.
A menstrual cup is a safe and healthy method of menstrual management which is able to change a young woman’s life.
Menstrual Cups can last a woman up to 10 years. They are also far more eco friendly than pads and tampons.Menstrual cups are easy to keep clean, requiring only a very small amount of water. Between uses, the cup is simply rinsed with clean water or wiped with a small clean towel. At the end of her period, the cup is sterilised by boiling it in water for five minutes.
