A huge thank you to the Canberra Days for Girls Team who are making menstrual kits for both women and girls at NHEDF and our fistula patients in Dharan. Days for Girls provide both normal menstrual kits and also heavy flow kits and whilst the latter are not suitable for women with unoperated fistula they are regularly used for women with light incontinence.
In Nepal many women do not have access to information about menstruation, nor do they have access to menstrual products. They simply use rags and cloths. Also in Nepal, particularly in the far west of the country, the ancient Hindu tradition of Chhaupadi is still practiced.
