Thursday 12th July 2018 was a memorable day for Women at the Bama and Gwoza Internal Displaced Persons Camps Abuja Nigeria;this is because staff of the Women and Girl-Child Capabilities Enhancement and Empowerment Trained them on Menstruation and how to effectively manage their menstruation while also giving them free Packs of Sanitary Pad each.
In her presentation, Ms. Oluwatoyin Olabisi who spoke through an interpreter Hajia Asabe explained to the Women that Menstrual Hygiene Management is using a CLEAN Menstrual Material to absorb Menstrual Blood and it is vital to the Health, Well-Being, Dignity, Empowerment, Mobility and Productivity of Women & Girls’. She also informed them that the Female Reproductive System begins to develop during Adolescent and consists of the Uterus, Fallopian Tubes, Ovaries, Uterus and the Vagina. For Menstruation to occur, an ovary releases an egg into the Fallopian Tubes; if the egg is not fertilized by a sperm menstruation occurs.
In-addition, she urged them to be neat during their menstrual hygiene as bad hygiene during menstruation can lead to entry of bacteria into the vulva area and facilitate the spread of germs. She also urged them to keep them their environments clean by disposing their used sanitary pad appropriately.
