Hundred of girls from township sublocation in Karingani ward have benefited from sanitary pads from the area MCA hon. Murithi Gaturo.
Speaking during the issuance of the necessities, Gaturo said he realised that the girls have been receiving pads in their schools issued by county and the national government but since the closure of Schools they might not be accessing the same from parents,thus making them go through hell.
” I realised a time like this children are not schooling may be going through hard time as their parents may not be affording to buy these pads to their girls unlike in schools where they are given for free and therefore i decided to chip in and help,” Gaturo said.
The MCA further noted that the lack of the pads may be the genesis of early pregnancies on school girls since currently they are not getting any pocket money while away from the school making them susceptible to outsiders who may pretend to be helping them.
Gaturo therefore challenged parents to be responsible for their children especially at a time like this they are with them at home as schools remain shut.
