FLO: Promoting Hygiene and Healthcare

Hygiene and healthcare are of utmost importance, particularly when it comes to children, and FLO is dedicated to ensuring the well-being ofall children, with a special focus on girls. Recognizing the significance of cleanliness and good health, FLO goes the extra mile to provide the necessary support and resources to maintain hygiene and healthcare standards.

One way FLO achieves this is by distributing essential hygiene kits to each child on a monthly basis. These kits include toothpaste, toothbrushes, shampoo, shower soap, and sanitary pads for girls. By supplying these items, FLO ensures that children have access to the essential tools they need to maintain cleanliness and good health.

FLO’s dedicated staff offers personalized counseling and guidance to girls as they navigate their menstrual cycles. This support goes beyond merely providing sanitary pads; it encompasses imparting knowledge on propermenstrual hygiene practices and educating girls on disease prevention. By offering practical advice and fostering open dialogue, FLO aims to empower girls and equip them with the necessary tools to manage their periods with confidence and dignity.

In addition to addressing menstrual health, FLO recognizes the importance of providing girls with basic knowledge about their reproductive systems. By providing age-appropriate information, FLO seeks to empower girls with a better understanding of their bodies, fostering body positivity and self-confidence.

By prioritizing hygiene and healthcare, FLO creates a supportive environment where all children can thrive. By recognizing the specific needs of girls and addressing them holistically, FLO aims to eliminate stigma and create a society where menstrual health is openly discussed and supported.
