Girls sanitary towels freedom far from them unless their mothers climb the mountain

Port Elizabeth, South Africa Breaking News May 15 @ 2:24pm

Scarcity of sanitary towels for girls forced moms to embark on a risky expedition in Africa to search for sanitary towels on top of the Mount Kilimanjaro. This adventure is for the Trek4Mandela set for 9th August on Women's Day. It is also supported by the Thuli Madonsela Women's Day Executive Climb. Cold weather below the freezing point will be one of their major challenges. They want to raise funds for girls of about two million around year 2020. One of these devoted women comes from the Eastern Cape in East London.
