Christina comes from a family of 6, where her mom earns far below minimum wage. She is unable to buy "luxuries" such as sanitary towels, forcing Christina to use socks or tissues instead.
Together with partners, ActionAid South Africa raised funds to purchase and distribute over 1,500 sanitary towels to teenage girls in the area in which Christina lives.
"It has not been easy to obtain all that is necessary for a young female like me to go about comfortably. Only my mother is the breadwinner and works for the school feeding scheme, so it becomes very difficult to meet all our family needs."- Christina
