The world is up side down and the current situation is affecting us all.

However, a pandemic does not stop people from having their menstruation.  We will therefor continue to send sanitary products to people who are forced to live in refugee camps on the borders of Europe 


 Send us your contribution by swish to 0733-307577


You can also choose to donate sanitary pads to us by sending them by mail or deliver in person to any of us in the organisation. Do you live nearby Malmö, Lund or Gothenburg - send us an e-mail and we will arrange to pick them up. 

"Respect for women in all societies includes respect and responsibility for women’s menstruation. This also ensures female fertility as a foundation of the survival and growth of societies, and creates an equal society - no matter environmental circumstances. I therefore support Mensual’s mission."

Goran Lingman, Professor emeritus Obstetrics and Gynecology, Sweden
