Ms. Mierra Abrokwah entreats parents to provide sanitary Pads to Adolescent Girls  to curb teenage pregnancy


The Bibiani Anhwiaso Bekwai Municipal 2023/2024 National Service Personnel Association (NASPA) womens commissioner Ms. Mierra Abrokwah has entreated parents to provide sanitary pads every month as an additional responsibility for their adolescent girls to serve as relieve during menstrual periods.

In an interview with Bibianinews.com , as the world celebrate International Menstrual Hygiene Day today, she said a lot of girls become truant due to their inability to provide sanitary pads and therefore affect their educational performances.

She explained because some parents could not afford to provide their adolescent girls with sanitary pads, such girls end up sleeping with men in their quest to buy themselves sanitary pads.

She noted some parents provide water, food, and clothing to their children without giving them sanitary pads, even at the adolescent stage.

Ms.Mierra Abrokwah therefore stressed the need for parents to consider all these needs as part of the essential needs of their children particularly for those in the boarding schools.

She stated menstrual stigma must be stopped, adding the society must also accept and understand that “menstruation is a normal thing,” so there is the need to sensitize the girl child  against shyness during such periods in school.
