PERIODS DO NOT STOP IN PANDEMICS!!!

YES, we are at it again!!! The Mina Foundation in partnership with The Rami Chuene Foundation and other Partners continues their mission to uplift our women and children. 


May is Mina month. To celebrate Mina’s 5th birthday and highlighting Global Menstrual Hygiene Day on 28th May, Mina kicks off her campaign in the month of love and will continue until the end of December 2021. Help us raise One Million Rand (R1 000 000), yes, ONE MILLION Rand in our quest to raise the status of our nation’s vulnerable.

The current pandemic has only intensified the harsh realities facing women and children.YOU can make a difference and help us lift the financial burden of menstrual health and feeding disadvantaged communities. Celebrate with Mina to celebrate this milestone by gifting a beneficiary with a Mina menstrual cup and a food hamper and giving hope to our communities.

The identified distribution days are:

  1. Human Rights Day (21 March 2021), because Women’s Rights are Human Rights and periods are not a luxury.
  2. Freedom Day (27 April 2021), because Mina gives you the freedom to be sporty and financially free a double celebration in MAY 2021 to celebrate this milestone. 
  3. Mina’s 5th Birthday on (27th May 2021).
  4. Global Menstrual Hygiene Day (28th May 2021).

And the celebrations don’t stop here.

As we continue to fight the pandemic now in its third wave and take a stand against poverty, violence against women and children, unemployment, and injustices facing our nation, we ask that you take a stand with us and be a part of a sustainable solution.

July - is Madiba month and due to the spike in covid cases, Mina is carrying out online sessions with Partners that are on the ground doing distribution.

August- is Women’s month and has been earmarked to distribute Mina to women in prisons and to surrounding communities. This project will continue throughout the year to reach at least another 5000 beneficiaries.

October- International Month of the Girl Child where we will be highlighting other challenges relating to the Girl Child.

So far, Mina has impacted approximately 65000 lives which include GBV survivors, rural school girls, orphanages, Refugees, LGBTQI communities and not forgetting women working in landfills.

Give a little dignity to our menstruators and join us as we venture across our country to provide a sustainable solution to period poverty and donating any amount that is affordable. Every cent counts.
