Persisting taboos and stigma continue to undermine the way we talk about menstruation in the MENA region. As a result, millions of women and girls are kept from reaching their full potential. Either through lack of education, lack of resources or lack of understanding, not all women are able to access sustainable, safe personal hygiene products that make them feel good.
All girls and women should feel empowered to manage their periods hygienically, with confidence and without shame. Through the Nabta Women’s Health Shop, we are committed to donating hygiene products to women in need across the MENA region, beginning in the UAE.
