CONTESTING BORDERS WITH MENSTRUAL SOLIDARITY

by distributing menstrual products to people that live in refugee camps

"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

Donate menstrual products and help someone who can't afford them!

Dignified and healthy periods are crucial in order to have a functioning life. Especially when you have to wait hours in line for food. 


In February Mensual made its first visit to Lesbos, Greece. We are now drafting a workshop focusing on menstrual hygiene and associated subjects together with organisations on the island; Bashira Centre for Women, Pikpa Camp and One Happy Family.


You can read about our work in a newsarticle in the  Swedish newspaper Sydsvenskan,  listen to a interview on Sveriges Radio, and read about why we think this is important in the Swedish newspaper ETC.
