For the International Women's Day, the Amicale in partnership with the French NGO Règles élémentaires, have organised a collection campaign for period products to be distributed to homeless women and women in need.
Thanks to you and your activ participation during the ten days of collection, have been collected: 8769 sanitary napkins, 6835 tampons and 754 other products (antibacterial gels, cups, wipes, intimate gels), which represents a total of 15 604 products!
The collected products are being given to local NGOs with field presence, in charge of the distribution to women in need: Foyer social Protestant, Strasbourg Action Solidarité and Foyer Notre Dame.
Thank you to all the team-project: Sophie, Carole, Martina, Pascale, Joanna, Alison, Isabelle and Fanny.
Thank you to Human ressources, the Gender Equality Division and Eurimages of the Council of Europe who sponsored this initiative at the 8 March screening of the film "Licht".
And above all, a huge thank you to all of you!
