Mennonite Central Committee’s (MCC) newest resource kit will support vulnerable women and girls with dignity. The new dignity kit contains hygiene and sanitary items tailored for women and girls who don’t have ready access to the items they need.
The first shipments of MCC dignity kits have already been sent to partners in South Sudan and Ukraine. Two shipments have been delivered to Loreto Rumbek School, an all-girls school in Rumbek, South Sudan. Nearly 1,600 kits have given students like Martha Akol safe and reusable hygiene options
Akol dreams about becoming an obstetrician. She wants to teach other women about feminine hygiene and safely deliver children into new lives. She says her dignity kit has further inspired her to work toward that goal and allows her to study with peace.
For the cost of around $31, an MCC dignity kit contains a variety of necessary items packed in a two-gallon pail with a lid.
MCC - Relief, development, and peace in the name of Christ!
