International Chapters and Teams Refugee Project

June 18, 2019

The UN Refugee Agency (UNHCR), declares that we are now witnessing the highest levels of displacement on record, with a reported 68.5 million forcibly displaced people worldwide. Of those, 25.4 million are refugees and 40 million are internally displaced people (IDPs). Given this dire situation, we have had an outpouring of interest from DfG volunteers looking for ways to help in a coordinated and impactful manner. As a result, we have set a goal to join in a collective effort to reach 33,000 refugee and IDP women and girls with DfG menstrual health Kits and education!

 

One of the locations selected for this project is Lebanon. The wonderful work being done there is highlighted in the featured film Turning Periods into Pathways. Make sure to watch and share!

 

"Most refugees can't afford pads because they need to spend what little money they have on food and medicine. They use old white cloths or old t-shirts instead, but the problem is they are too shy to wash this and hang it out to dry. This isn't safe for their health. DfG Kits provide a wonderful alternative to this as they are multicolored, don't look like pads and they are safe to use!

 

The AWH education is just as important because it teaches them information that most of them don't already know. It makes them more relaxed and confident and it breaks down taboos and stigmas. It has a lasting impact because they can pass the information on to their daughters, who will then pass it down to their daughters." --Khayrieh, DfG Lebanon
