Prayatna Nepal In partnership with Down syndrome society has successfully conducted a mensuration hygiene workshop with parents of Down syndrome society and self-advocate on 19th September 2021. The training was conducted in the Down Syndrome Society Kathmandu. Participants were distributed menstrual cups. Thank you so much, MS. Shila Thapa, for your coordination. As well as thanks to MS. Bijaya lama representative of Marie Stopes Gongabu for her time and wonderful orientation sessions on menstrual cups.
The objective of the training was to orient the participants(parents of Down syndrome children) to the cycle of menstruation and ways of maintaining menstrual hygiene and cleanliness of their children. Participants were delighted to receive a menstrual cup because the menstrual cup was completely new for them and an interesting topic of discussion. Participants found the cup quite useful as it was environment friendly and one menstrual cup can be used for 8-10 years. We are thankful to mama cash for the funding support.
