Sanitary protection for ladies in Luxor.

Post by little_angel_204 »

Could someone tell me if there is somewhere in Luxor that helps girls/women access sanitary protection for free or cheap?

I have heard that women use towels that can be quite expensive or many women use rags.

I have a chat with a few people now as I suggested moon cups or menstrual cups to help cut the cost dramatically but it seems that for unmarried Egyptian women (at least) that this wouldn't be suitable.

Id like to donate some new menstrual cups and pads to a place that helps out, so girls can stay in school or stop them having to stay in their home for around one week each month.

May seem an odd request but I have been hearing a lot more about girls in 3rd world countries dropping out of school purely because they are loosing a week of school each month and are unable to keep up. So I am doing a little research into it and seeing if there is something I can do to help.

Any info would be great, thanks.
