Celebrating World Menstrual Hygiene Day at Technical Secondary School, Umuowa. MAY 2024

Our hospital celebrated the World Menstrual Hygiene Day , which is celebrated all over the world on 28th May. We engaged young female students at Technical Secondary School, Umuowa, as we celebrated Menstrual Hygiene Day together. It was inspiring to see everyone come together to raise awareness about the importance of proper hygiene during menstruation. Speaking during the gathering , the leader of the outreach team , Ms Kolade, a Senior Reproductive Health Nurse ,noted that , “ As we strive to empower and educate our girls, it’s crucial to break the silence surrounding menstruation and foster an environment of understanding and support. Menstruation is not a problem to be solved, but a power to be celebrated.” The hospital distributed over 2000 free packets of sanitary pads to the students.   We shall continue to  promote menstrual hygiene and ensure every girl has access to the resources and knowledge they need to thrive!
