Spotlight: Victrix Donation
In 2022, Victrix, a charity foundation funded by a prominent Belgian business family, reached out to the AFRIpads Foundation to enquire about funding reusable pads for vulnerable girls. The family behind the Victrix foundation have a long standing history of supporting charitable causes, and wanted to support an initiative for girls in sub saharan Africa.
AFRIpads identified 4 organizations, 3 in Uganda and 1 in Kenya, that would benefit from a donation of reusable pads to support for 3 years.
AFRIpads Foundation and AFRIpads Ltd ensured that the items were distributed to the partners, dealing with the logistics and transportation of the goods. The recipient organizations were also trained on menstrual health and hygiene, and how to use and care for AFRIpads products.
