Female Students Shot in The Arm
The Gift of the Givers Foundation is the largest disaster response non-governmental organization of African origin on the African continent. The essence of their presence is to bring hope and restore dignity to the most vulnerable.
According to the Project Officer Aziza Bakari, their aim is to give the gift of health and hope through lifesaving healthcare to the most vulnerable groups.
Before donating, Bakari made a presentation on how the students should effectively use the tampons which is not a common item since most of them are familiar with the sanitary pads.
Receiving the donation on behalf of the Dean of Students, was Dr Christabel Kambala who thanked the Gift of the Givers foundation for their generous donation.
Kambala said that, this gesture will enable students to concentrate on their studies without worrying about the health and economic challenges when they are going through their menstruation cycles.
One of the student’s representatives, Susan Magombo thanked the Gift of the Givers Foundation for the donation which she said has helped them to have peace of mind during the new month because they will not have to worry about money to buy sanitary pads.
The students, especially those involved in sports appreciated the donation of tampons since they are very effective and less messy.
