Dignity Packs for our sisters in need
Providing young vulnerable girls with dignity packs that contain essential feminine hygiene products is a crucial step to advocating for women’s rights in Islam and improving the overall well-being of girls around the world. These packs are designed to provide girls with the necessary products to manage their menstrual cycles and maintain personal hygiene, which can be difficult to access or afford.
Feminine hygiene products such as reusable pads are essential for girls to maintain their personal hygiene and manage their menstrual cycles. In Indonesia and Pakistan, these products are not widely available or are too expensive for many families to afford due to both natural and man-made disasters affecting these countries. This can lead to girls missing school or work, and even dropping out altogether.
To combat this issue, Penny Appeal Australia has started providing dignity packs to young vulnerable girls in need. These packs typically include a variety of feminine hygiene products, as well as other essentials such as soap, shampoo, and deodorant. The packs are often distributed through schools or community centres, ensuring that girls have access to them in a safe and comfortable environment.
The provision of dignity packs can have a profound impact on the lives of young girls. Not only do they provide girls with the necessary products to manage their menstrual cycles, but they also help to reduce the shame and stigma surrounding menstruation. This can improve girls’ self-esteem and confidence, and ultimately lead to better educational and economic outcomes.
Providing young vulnerable girls with dignity packs that contain essential feminine hygiene products is a simple yet impactful way to improve the overall well-being of girls around the world. By ensuring that girls have access to these products, we can help them to stay in school, achieve their goals, and reach their full potential.

The Prophet (PBUH) said: ” I advise you to take care of the women, for they are created from a rib and the most crooked portion of the rib is its Upper part; if you try to straighten it, it will break, and if you leave it, it will remain crooked, so I urge you to take care of women.”Sahih Al-Bukhari
