Citron Hygiene, a global washroom hygiene services company, and Aunt Flow, provider of free vending period product machines, are donating 20,000 period products to support those affected by the conflict in Ukraine.
With the help of I Support The Girls (ISTG), a non-profit organisation who help impoverished women, they are getting these essential feminine hygiene products to those who need them in Ukraine.
Robert Guice, CEO of Citron Hygiene, said: “We are committed to combating period poverty. We help businesses, companies and institutions across the UK and North America to satisfy the basic needs of females and other menstruators who use their public washrooms by providing them free menstrual products for emergency use and proper, safe disposal units for them. By partnering with Aunt Flow and ISTG, we extend our support of period dignity to Ukraine.”
“Periods don’t stop for pandemics or wars”, said Claire Coder, CEO and Founder of Aunt Flow. “By donating these period products to affected Ukrainians, we hope this will be a small but meaningful way to help. With so much going on, menstruators should not need to worry about how to access essentials like tampons or pads. We’re so grateful to Citron Hygiene and ISTG for partnering with us to make this donation possible to support the health, hygiene, and safety of those in Ukraine and globally.”
