UFULU provides Ruby Cups to the female population of Malawi.  At present we are concentrating on Likoma, the larger of 2 inhabited islands on Lake Malawi.  Likoma has 14,500 inhabitants in a dozen settlements. As always, we are working with the permission and co-operation of the village Chiefs, the local District Commissioner, the medical staff at the district hospital and the Head and female staff of the schools.

Malawi is one of the poorest countries in the world – ranked 150 out of 196 by the World Bank.  

In Malawi, 50% of the population live below the poverty line and 25% live in extreme poverty.  Most women and girls cannot afford proper sanitary protection and it can be difficult finding products beyond the large towns and cities.  This is why we started UFULU and why we give cups for free.
