My name is Natalie Denny and I am an Education and Training Manager from Liverpool. Thank you so much for taking the time to look at The Homeless Period Liverpool fundraising page.
Periods are not a great time of the month for any woman, but for homeless women with very limited access to the expensive 'luxury' of sanitary items, it is a truly awful and humiliating time, and because of the taboo that surrounds the topic, it's something that doesn't often cross our mind.
Some women are forced to use ripped up cloths, old socks or toilet roll from public toilets, or make a few tampons last the entire length of their period. This can lead to infections, so it doesn't just have an emotional impact but is a danger to women's physical health.
This is why I have joined The Homeless Period Team, to supply the women in Liverpool with the items they struggle to get access to.
We are all volunteers and will be collecting donations of wipes, underwear and sanitary items and produce female care packages which are delivered to various projects and shelters across the city
If you would like to help, you can donate here. We will also be setting up donation stations and will provide the address to send donations to once they are confirmed.
The money and donations go towards creating our special period care packs, which each contain underwear, wipes, and a selection of sanitary products. These packs will be going out to other homeless charities and projects in Liverpool to make a difference for as many women as possible who are in difficult circumstances, allowing their dignity and health to be maintained through their periods.
Thank you again for visiting our page. We are incredibly grateful for the support and donations given to our cause no matter how big or small!
