Moon Sick Care Bags

$1,390 of $5,000 goal

Raised by 23 people in 12 months

Hello my name is Gay Muller. I have recently been to Papua New Guinea and seen firsthand the desperate need for material sanitary pads for women. The pads I make are re-useable as they have waterproof casing and can be washed. Currently in PNG there is no option for girls to have access to sanitation items or they cannot afford them.  

Together with a group of friends we have created a pattern for the pads and have started sewing and making multiple pads already. 

The costing for what i have called the moon sick care bags is $12.00 each. Moon Sick being the term often used for their monthly periods.The bag includes 2 pair of undies, 4 pads, soap and a washer or handtowel.
I am currently working on a laminated diagram explaining their cycle and what to prepare for as there is limited to no eductaion available to gilrs,  on this topic.

I have connections within Papua New Guinea and once packs are ready to send they will go directly to the local and reomote villages. 

If you feel this is something you could help with i would really appreciate it.  All donations are for purchasing materials and items only (labour in sewing and packing is voluntary).
Thankyou
Gay

I want to update you all on the project. I have had three trips to Doomadgee North Queensland working with the wonderful ladies at 'My Pathway' who are making 330 bags for the ladies in the treaty villages. It has been a great part of the project teaching the ladies to sew and overlock to make the bags and pads.
