Ending Period Poverty



24 Mar 2019

This is Nandi.  She lives in Nkwazi village on the south of Likoma Island.  She and Widge became good friends in 2018 and it is because of her that UFULU came about.

Widge bought Nandi a Ruby Cup for Christmas 2018 because she couldn’t bear the thought of Nandi using cloth rags any more.   When Widge phoned Nandi after Christmas to ask her how the cup was working out for her, she replied  

“Thank you so much.  Thank you for this. This cup has changed my life.  No one knows I have my period anymore.  I can do whatever I want.  I can work, I can dance, I can go shopping and no one knows.  You have changed my life.  May God bless you.”
