Stella Nyanzi’s Sanitary Pads Campaign Goes to Kamwenge

The MP donated a 4 in 1 kit that is reusable for 12 months, find valued at 5 Euros or Shs .16,000 each, to Kahunge Primary School girls.

Hon. Mirembe hailed AFRI pads which supported him in this impactful donation and support to the plight of the girl child in Kibale County.
