…. I would like to share my sister’s story with you
As we were young with my siblings eight girls only, but three of us were the youngest. As I’ve mentioned early on that the only
thing that we were using was toilet paper nothing else, we never have that privilege to have or use the pad, so one day
My sister come up with the solution to us , she took a old t-shirt and tear it into big pieces, and she gave us we were wondering why she’s giving us the pieces to the t-shirt and she said from now we are out of misery we dint understand
She said we are using this pieces as pad , we were happy regardless of knowing that we can’t change it till you are at home after school, then you can change and put the clean one. It was a big difference from using the toilet paper to cloth. She invented the reusable pad for us…J
This is the story that I wanted to share with you.
