Recently, embattled Makerere University Don, Dr. Stella Nyanzi championed a sanitary pads distribution campaign to needy girls.
She has been distributing the pads in various parts of Uganda the latest being Mukono Municipality.
On Friday afternoon, Nyanzi handed over 2000 re-usable pads to Mukono municipality MP, Betty Nambooze.
Nambooze wrote on her social media;
Dr. Stella Nyanzi has visited me this afternoon with a set of 2000 re-usable sanitary pads for my girls. Knowing that each set goes for 7,000/- therefore Dr.Stella Nyanzi has donated over 14M shillings to Mukono Municipality. The girls turned up in big numbers and in my opinion the benefited more from the talk by experts who work with Dr.Nyanzi. Interestingly the Stella who came to Mukono is different from Stella on social media. The one who came to Mukono is calm,composed and spoke without mentioning any word that can make you uncomfortable around children…today I discovered that the Stella Nyanzi I see on Facebook is just a tool of Maama Stella!! Thank you Stella, thank you Pads#Girls Uganda and thanks to all people who are supporting Dr.Stella Nyanzi’s initiative.
