Talia Women’s Network an organization based in Zimbabwe launched a campaign to restore dignity to the girls and women in the areas affected by Cyclone Idai.
This came out of the realization that though people were giving second-hand clothes, there is an item of clothing which we do not pass to others and these are PANTIES. We were sure that panties were being overlooked and which girl or woman wants to go around without any panties.
Through Facebook, we fundraised money to prepare what we call “Chayil Dignity Packs”.. Each Dignity Pack contains a 2panties, reusable sanitary pads, Vaseline jelly, toothbrush, toothpaste, face towel and bathing soap.
We have now reached the target of the packs that we want to distribute in the areas affected by Cyclone Idai.
On 28 May, Talia Women’s Network will be distribution Dignity packs to young girls at Chimana Secondary in Chipinge, Manicaland area
