PORT Alfred’s E Rotary Club, part of Rotary Club International, donated and distributed sanitaryware to young schoolgirls at Port Alfred Primere Skool last Friday.
“We intend to visit five schools in the area, and Station Hill is the first of them to receive a sanitary gift,” said E Club’s Hans Hon.
Hon went on to say that, in schools were the female pupils have access to the correct sanitary products when menstruation occurs have little problems with absenteeism. Providing sanitary products to girls reduces absenteeism by around 80% said Hon.
While they were waiting for the presentation the girls sang.
