Chinenye Ngwogu speaking to Dority students
May 28 has been set aside every year as World Menstrual Hygiene Day. It was initiated by German-based NGO WASH in 2014 to benefit women and girls worldwide. The 28th was selected to acknowledge that 28 days is the average length of the menstrual cycle.
Therefore, on Tuesday, May 28, 2019, Chinenye Ngwogu, a member of D.I.S.S Alumni Class of 2012 and her fellow Absumites (Abia State University Medical Students Association-ABSUMSA) had the privilege to be at our alma mater, Dority International Secondary School, Aba where they spoke on the theme: “Operation Eat Right Always” (OPERA). They also used the avenue to commemorate the World Menstrual Hygiene Day.
They educated the students on healthy living and menstrual hygiene.
Fruits and sanitary pads were shared to students and teachers, there was also a question and answer session with prizes.
