To meet our beneficiaries at their points of need and alleviate the impacts of COVID-19, NIGEE, with the support of the American Jewish World Service, Global Fund for Children, Mundo Cooperante, and EMPower Foundation, distributed 1,380 dignity packs to needy girls across the four counties we work in. Each pack contained 6 packets of sanitary towels, 4 bar soaps, medium-sized petroleum jelly, a 140g tab of toothpaste, 1 piece of toothbrush, four rolls of tissue paper, and one piece of branded washable facemask.
