In celebration of the 2020 Menstrual Hygiene day (MH day), Reach A Hand Uganda and partners are running an educational engagement series of activities aimed at increasing awareness on menstrual care and demystifying the negative stereotypes associated with menstruations. Globally this year’s MH Day theme is aimed at breaking the silence on menstruation, raising awareness on the same, while challenging negative social norms around menstruation.
