May 28 of each year marks World Menstrual Hygiene Day, a day dedicated to providing worldwide support to women and girls who still suffer from the stigma and hardships associated with the menstrual cycle, and how to act when they occur, as well as lack of awareness and poor hygiene that leads to loss of dignity and increased health risks due to the resort of some girls to incorrect practices.

    It is worth mentioning that approximately 63% of girls in rural and remote areas, which often lack running water and practical WC, are more prone to health problems and lack of hygiene associated with the menstrual cycle, which forces most girls to stay at home during the time of the period.
