Your gift improves hygiene, promotes community health and prevents disease.
A gift of health supports efforts to improve hygiene and prevent the spread of disease. In many places around the world, girls who reach puberty lack the hygiene supplies they need and often end up missing days of school each month or dropping out. Soap and sanitary pads provided through MCC help girls like Nadine Kanyambo in Burundi stay healthy and continue their education. Last year Kanyambo graduated from secondary school and was accepted into a program working with recent high school graduates to help them find paths to university studies abroad.
