Deborah Nolan was introduced to Helen Cox of Courtenay who is part of a volunteer organization named Days for Girls. They sew reusable women’s hygiene products for distribution where they are needed. Helen asked Deborah when she heard that she was going to Ethiopia, would she be interested in taking some packets with her. Deb said of course and flew over with a very large suitcase loaded with 50 packages to give away.
Deb was impressed that this school has a room set aside for the girls with fresh water and a bed if needed.
Days for Girls encourages anyone to make their own from patterns that are available online from their site. Hmm… sounds like another of those sustainable ideas at work. www.daysforgirls.org
