Fight against menstrual insecurity: the state supports Alefpa Le Manteau


The Alefpa Le Manteau association does not only provide food aid to people in difficulty in Saint-Martin; it also participates in the fight against menstrual insecurity. 

She thus helps women who are in the street or who are accommodated in the center of the association, by distributing a package to them including several hygienic products (towels, soap, tampons, etc.).

"Menstrual insecurity represents a health issue, as evidenced by the risks posed by the insufficient renewal of protection or the use of unsuitable products which can lead to infections or lead to toxic shock syndrome", agrees the State which wanted to provide a territorial dimension to the fight against menstrual insecurity. So he signed agreements with associations locally.

It launched a call for projects and three structures, including one in Saint-Martin (including Alefpa Le Manteau) were selected by the prefecture of Guadeloupe, which granted a global envelope of 82 euros. "These aids take on their importance in view of the successive crises that our islands are going through and whose repercussions in terms of economic and social insecurity are major", comments the prefecture.
