Menstrual Hygiene Day 2024

In time for Menstrual Hygiene Day on May 28th, hear about how an organization started in Scenectady helps supply menstrual products to girls in over 30 countries to help them stay in school. The Mooncatcher Project also presents health education programs for boys and girls, and has become an important economic development presence in many countries. Ellie vonWellsheim, the founder of the Mooncatcher Project, overviews the programs, explains how MCP helps menstruators here in the capital region with ‘Period Pantries” to share disposable products, and outlines ways you can help support the efforts.
