During the month of March the men and women of the Caribbean Cement Company came together to help end period poverty by way of a contribution of sanitary napkins to the Her Flow Foundation. The initiative was conceptualized and coordinated by Ann-Marie Walters, Carib Cement’s Nurse Administrator who motivated many to give. Dr Shelley-Ann Weeks, founder of the Her Flow Foundation, on receiving the items, said they will be earmarked for areas in Jamaica which are under quarantine due to the outbreak of the COVID-19 virus. This is especially helpful, as one of the quarantined communities is located close to the Carib Cement quarries. Libresse Jamaica was told about the initiative by a staff member and added 120 packages of sanitary napkins to the donation. By this initiative more than 100 girls can be assisted through their next period with the more than 300 packages of napkins donated.
