DURING August, The Robin Hood Foundation joined forces with Satin Candy and WSI to make a difference to young rural women, most of whom go without decent feminine hygiene products or a new bra.

Kim Griffith Jones, co-ordinator of The Robin Hood Foundation said: “The community’s support has been fantastic. We are so excited to be able to provide 160 young teenage girls from Thokoza Mnganga High School with feminine items, and at the same time inspire, educate and uplift them. This will be followed by a further visit to Kwanjobokazi later this month to bless another 50 teenage girls.”

Sandra Thomas of Satin Candy added: “We were delighted to be involved in this campaign where we could provide assistance to these young girls and are grateful to our customers who assisted in collecting over 250 new bras in the Pride and Poise campaign.”

Each girl received a feminine essentials hamper each containing new panties and bras from Satin Candy, Subz washable sanitary pack, packs of soap, facecloths, deodorant, sprays and roll on, lotion and pamper products, toothbrush and toothpaste, sanitary pads and/or panty liners as well as a variety of girly items, including nail polish, purse, handbag and scarves.

“Thanks to our generous community and the companies that contributed towards for this educational event for these young girls.” - Supplied.
