EDMONTON INSTITUTE FOR WOMEN

Women in prison often face significant challenges, including limited access to basic hygiene products. This can lead to severe physical health issues, deterioration of mental health and a profound sense of indignity. By supplying sanitary pads and underwear, we are addressing an urgent need and upholding the fundamental rights of these women.

THE IMPORTANCE OF SANITARY PRODUCTS

• Health and Hygiene: Access to sanitary pads is critical to maintaining

personal hygiene and preventing infections.

• Dignity: Providing these products helps preserve the dignity of incarcerated

women, ensuring they can manage their menstrual health with confidence and privacy.

• Well-being: Proper menstrual care supports the overall mental and physical well-being of women.

THE IMPORTANCE OF UNDERWEAR

• Comfort and Hygiene: Clean underwear is essential for comfort and

preventing infections.

• Self-esteem: Having adequate underwear contributes to a woman’s sense of self-worth and dignity.
