FEMALE HYGIENE DRIVE: The Montgomery County Women's Bar Association is running a female hygiene drive from September 1, 2021 to October 31, 2021. We are collecting: pads, tampons, and liners. All donations can be dropped off at the Chambers of Lili Khozeimeh. Afghan women and girls are fleeing to the United States, a country where the environment and culture is drastically different from their homes. “Women and girls often get forgotten during regular times, when it’s compounded by a major humanitarian crisis, I think they’re forgotten about even more,” said Dana Marlowe, Founder and Executive Director of I Support the Girls (ISTG). “Periods don’t stop for refugees. Periods don’t stop in a refugee crisis. I Support The Girls is just trying to bring a little bit more dignity and alleviate that one worry when there are so many concerns that the women and girls have right now.” The items collected will be dropped off at I Support the Girls (https://isupportthegirls.org), which collects these items for homeless youth, women, and refugees. I Support The Girls has donated over 22,700 items including, maxi pads, new bras and underwear, face masks, sanitizer, toiletries, household supplies and more to half a dozen organizations, such as Refugee Services in Texas, Refugee Women’s Alliance in Seattle, Asylee Women Enterprise in Baltimore, and Gathering Humanity in Phoenix, to provide relief and restore dignity to Afghan women and girls.
