Jeska Poni, Education Coordinator, and Edward Mika, Clinical Officer at the CRESS funded clinic in the Mijali, journeyed out to the refugee camps to start the three-day training programme. The training programme includes hygiene, family planning and menstrual cycle training as well as making reusable menstrual pads with the girls and young women in the community.

The training was funded by a generous grant from Womens’ World Day of Prayer.
