  • To introduce the menstrual cup as a form of safe and effective menstrual health management method in CARE’s integrated Wash, Shelter and Protection response to newly arrived South Sudanese refugees and host communities in Imvepi Refugee Settlement
  • To educate beneficiaries and secondary support groups on menstrual health management, including menstrual cups and how to safely and effectively use them
  • To engage the communities in discussions on menstruation; deepen their understanding on how it impacts girls, women and their families, address related stigma and taboos, and create open spaces for talking positively about menstruation and reproductive health issues.
