Women and girls in Samburu, Marsabit and Moyale counties are set to receive sanitary towels for free for the next three months.

Sanitary towels remain a critical challenge for many young girls in Kenya due to the Covid-19 pandemic. The groups will also be holding a 30-minute session with the girls to educate them on FGM and early pregnancies.
