Rossana Health Convoy
We are a youth-led organization focusing on Improving the health of Ugandans through healthcare treatment, minimizing menstrual stigma and ealth education campaigns.
Since our inception in March 2018, we have been able to reach over 4,860 girls and women with Menstrual Hygiene Campaigns. We are currently in 22 primary schools in 9 districts in western Uganda. We help to break the stigma that surrounds menstruation as we empower the girls to realize their full potential. We do this through providing girls with free re-usable sanitary pads (Rossapads), teaching them how to make their own re-usable sanitary pads and carrying out menstrual hygiene management programs with the girls. This helps girls to look at menstruation as normal and natural process that every girl must go through in life.
To ensure a good health for all residents of rural Uganda and all the surrounding areas through health campaigns, providing quality and affordable medical supplies, treatment and reusable sanitary towels.
A good life for all girls and women and all Ugandans in rural Uganda.
1. Extend quality and affordable drugs and medical treatment to the local people in rural communities in Uganda.
