"Dignity, you are incredible! The sanitary products you have provided have been life-changing for many girls and their whānau. As an NGO, we are unable to purchase sanitary products as we just don’t have the budget, so being able to accessibility has been very rewarding."
"What you offer is priceless. It is emotional for many of the women we are with - they feel cared for, (more) worthy, acknowledged, seen, supported. For these women, they don't get these kinds of items - a different focus to food grants, Case Worker transport, Oranga Tamariki advocacy - Menstrual items are a luxury that remains mostly unseen. Thank you with all our aroha."
"We support women who are in need. We support single dads who do not know about period products for their daughters. We support a lot of women in bad situations who do not have access to period products. We support women who are financially dependent on their partners and are unable to access period products. To be able to provide every product, for every request is so amazing."
