The NMH Foundation & the Homeless Period
Inspired by the project the Homeless Period Dublin our fantastic Social Work Team have now set up a similar scheme here in the Hospital. The initiative was set up to change the idea of charity to 'gifting' a product from your hand to that of another woman in need. Across Dublin donations of sanitary products are regularly distributed to women who simply cannot afford them.
Here in the NMH our Social Work Team will be giving Mothers maternity pads, breast pads & disposable underwear, as needed. We have been very lucky and received a donation from Mothercare Ireland keeping our stocks high but there are still other ways to support women.
Next time you are doing your weekly shop you might consider purchasing some sanitary products for NMH Mothers who cannot afford them themselves.
