About 700 female adolescents have received free sanitary pads through Bra Dea Foundation’s ‘Her First Period’ project so far.
The beneficiaries are from some selected Junior High Schools in the Bono Region.
Apart from the sanitary pads, the beneficiaries were educated by Health Professionals led by Madam Evelyn Opoku-Agyeman, a Health Promotion Officer at the Sunyani Municipal Hospital on menstrual hygiene.
Nyamaa JHS, Urban Council JHS and Bahamia Islamic JHS are the latest schools in Sunyani to benefit from the project.
The Chief Executive Officer (CEO) of Bra Dea Foundation, Michael Edwards Kwasi told Newshuntermag.com recently that his outfit aims to give about 5, 000 sanitary pads to female adolescents in deprived areas within the Bono Region.
He, therefore, appealed to benevolent individuals and groups to support this project.
