Guyana’s rural poor received feminine hygiene kits from Canada as part of its Corporate Social Responsibility program. Caribbean Airlines delivered the kits from Toronto for distribution to women and girls living in rural communities.
The initiative was undertaken in partnership with international NGO, Days For Girls. The reusable products are designed to last up to three years.
Since launching operations in 2008, Days For Girls has impacted the lives of more than two million females in over 144 countries.
Allison Grant, DFG’s liaison in Guyana, said: “I think it’s a wonderful gesture by Caribbean airlines to transport these kits. And, for helping to make the delivery of these kits possible.”
“We are in a pandemic and many women and girls in the low income communities of Guyana are in need of these hygiene kits. We would have handed the kits out sooner, but the global pandemic hindered our plans.”
