How You Can Help Girls in UK Skipping School

  • As I am currently in UK visiting family, I was shocked to learn that a lot of girls in UK miss school every month because they cant afford tampons and are too embarrassed to get help. As if growing up isn't difficult enough it must be so scary for these girls. Also homeless women don't get the sanitary products they need. I did a YouTube video to help raise awareness and since I know a lot of women on this site travel between UK and Spain, I thought you may want to help. When thinking of donations we automatically think of donating food but sanitary products are also needed. The best place to donate is the local foodbank. You can find the nearest to your area in UK by going to this website https://www.trusselltrust.org/get-help/find-a-foodbank/ You can find out more about the cause here http://thehomelessperiod.com/ I find it so sad that these girls miss out on so much because they are too embarrassed to get help. If by posting this I can help just one of them then it was worth it!
