A YOUNG woman is looking for assistance in her drive to collect sanitary towels for girls at a primary school in Peddie.
Sisanda Mabizela started this project as many young girls at the Nobumba Primary School missed school due to their menstrual periods.
“I started sharing that I would be collecting sanitary towels last month on Facebook and I have received positive feedback. I appreciate that because it will assist the kids a lot,” she said.
Mabizela said if people were not in East London, they could donate money and she would provide proof of purchase of the sanitary towels.
“Some people have deposited money and I have bought packets of sanitary towels and sent them pictures of slips and receipts from stores I bought them from,” she said.
Mabizela is considering making this collection an annual project.
