How Making Reusable Pads Is Helping Women In Bidibidi

Menstrual hygiene can be a challenge especially in Bidibidi, one of the largest refugee settlements in the world.

Many women have received a sewing machine and can now sell their handmade pads to neighbors, thus providing both an income and a hygienic (and eco-friendly) solution.
