"MENSTRATION IN PRISON" a campaign that strives to provide cotton-based sanitary pads to female prisoners in Kenya, Africa, free of charge.
Though many argue that prisoners cannot be pampered in jail, having access to sanitary pads is not a luxury – it is a basic human right. Just like no-one should have to beg to use the toilet, or be given toilet paper, women too must be able to retain their dignity during their menstrual cycle. Using periods to punish women simply has no place in any women's prison.
Recent reports show that women in Kenyan prisons are sharing sanitary pads. This is so heartbreaking and so unhygienic. With this campaign I would like to donate sanitary pads in the women prisons(18) in Kenya. We will do it monthly, with each month donating to a different prison. We need help in funding this project. Any amount counts.
