Emergency Response

Menstrual health in a time of emergency is a key focus at Days for Girls International. We believe access to period products is a human right even during a crisis. We work with our partners to help assure the menstrual health needs of women and girl refugees are being met amidst pandemic, displacement, natural disaster, and other emergencies.

Covid-19 Response & Resources

When COVID-19 hit Days for Girls was immediately flooded with requests to leverage our sewing expertise for a brand-new purpose: to make face masks for local medical personnel, essential workers and other vulnerable populations on the pandemic frontlines. We immediately pivoted to heed the call.
