Period Poverty Program
1 in 4 menstruators reported not being able to afford period products in the last year. 1 in 5 low income menstruators have missed school, work or similar activity due to lack of access to period products.
Helping Mamas works with school districts, shelters, health departments and other organizations to make sure that no one is left behind because of period poverty. In 2020 we distributed 800,000 period products to the community.
