Mina turns 4 on the 27th May. In celebration of Mina's birthday and Global Menstrual Hygiene Day on 28th May, the Mina Foundation is donating 100 x Mina menstrual cups to Reclaimers and Waste Pickers who spend their days in our waste.

We are pleading to public to help us raise more to reach more. 

PERIODS DO NOT GO ON LOCKDOWN-Women's Rights are Human Rights! -Break the Silence on Periods ” Periods are not a Luxury"

Mina is a small silicone menstrual cup that is changing lives. She is used by today's modern woman as an alternative for pads and tampons in various countries around the world.

Mina collects up to three times more fluid than a tampon. She is a friend you can count on, eco friendly, non toxic, non porous and a safe and hygienic way of managing periods.

This initiative allows us to change stories and re-write the destiny of our future leaders. By MINApowering our girls & women we are not just contributing to their lives and their communities but also to our environment.

Any amount will impact the lives of those in need and assist us in ending taboos attached to menstrual health. Mina has benefitted 60 000 beneficiaries so far, help us reach another 60 000 this year. 

1 x Mina cup costs R150  and ensures that a beneficiary will be period- stress free for 5 years.
