Strategic Objectives

Most of us in the POC are unable to acquire dignity pads during our menstruation period due to our financial constraints, said Mary. But now we are very happy and thankful that SAADO have come to our rescue with dignitary kits that contains soaps, pads and under wears, she added. 224 married women an 126 girls at their reproductive ages were given the kits in Jonglei state-Bor county inside the protection of civilians site.

This gathering for distribution was also used by SAADO’s technical advisor on protection and GBV as an opportunity to sensitize women and girls on sexual reproductive health. They were also enlightened on the kit’s content, usage and disposal in order to maintain clean and healthy environment.

Most of the women inside the POC have no access to dignitary kits hence making it difficult to remain clean during menstruation; most of them are unable to buy the pads due to their economic situation in the POC. We are very happy to receive the dignity kits from SAADO, said Nyandeng Gatluak.

SAADO in partnership with UNFPA started the program of distributing the kits inside the POC in order to meet the needs of the women who have suffered a lot.
