Yali Abia in her service to humanity hosted a project one – girl – one – pad, in a rural community secondary school.
Menstrual health and it’s importance is one subject matter that should be treated amongst all young females.
Good gracious, YALI Abia saw the need to organise the project one girl one pad.
The project was carried out in Ehere Community Secondary School, Opobo road, Azumini, Aba.
The female students and a few teachers gained the knowledge shared and received a pack of Angel pad each.
Topic for discourse was “Menstrual Health and it’s Importance”
Excerpts include :
Menstruation is the flow of blood from the Uterus through the vagina which occurs in every female at every child bearing age.
Every young female, during menstruation should be conscious of her health. It’s pertinent to bath at least twice, change pad every 6 to 8 hours, use deodorants to curb body odour, keep inner wears clean and so on.
To reduce cramps, young females should avoid taking much sugar or sugary edibles and should exercise often.
Young females should understand their cycle, safe and unsafe period, ovulation and the likes. – Desire Kings
