Sustainable Health Care for Haiti (SHH) serves The Fondation Montesinos Orphanage in Titanyen, Haiti, comprising nearly 50 girls, ages 9- 20.
Our most pressing concern is the coming-of-age of these girls under conditions of extreme poverty and lack of access to education about their changing bodies, optimal personal hygiene practices, and reproductive health concerns.
We are dedicated to helping the girls in this community access age-appropriate sanitary products in an effort to enhance reproductive awareness while building their agency in caring for the changing needs of their bodies. The money we raise by the end of calendar year 2020 will serve to purchase menstrual starter kits with sanitary brief and pad supplies. We plan to provide easy-to-access health education along with these products, aiming to select products which use sustainable materials and are priced reasonably enough to ensure a steady supply for the girls for years to come.
Will you join us?
Sustainable product kits of leak-free briefs and reusable pad supplies can be purchased for a $60 donation.
One sustainable use brief or pad may serve a girl for up to 3 years. We hope to acquire enough supplies for 100 kits by 12/31/2020.
Financial goal: $6,000.
