Grade 7 girls attending Heinz Park Primary School have benefited from a sanitary pad drive, arranged by a local pageant queen.

Micaela Adonis, Miss Golden SA 2018 Western Cape, did the handover to the Grade 7 girls on Friday 9 November.

“I cannot say the exact amount of time it took to collect the pads but it took a few weeks. It was collected and sponsored by residents in the community and a few packs were sponsored by Councillor Eddie Andrews. [The] modelling studio donated and some also saw on Facebook,” she says. “I don’t have one specific school, I have various schools that I go to in the community.”

On this occasion, 90 packs of sanitary pads were distributed.

“The reason it is important is because not many people can afford sanitary towels and therefore children will stay out of school. I have a passion for children and it is a necessity to have pads,” she says.

This is an ongoing initiative.

“If anyone wants to donate, they can. When people go do their shopping, they can pop in a pack for the drive.”
