Menaye Donkor Muntari has donated 2000 pieces of sanitary pads to some female head-porters, popularly known as kayayei, in the country.

The gesture, according to the Managing Director and CEO of Sincerely Ghana Limited, was in response to the call for individuals and organisations to support the vulnerable in society to withstand the social crisis brought by Covid-19.

The donation was made through the Gender Ministry on Saturday after a short ceremony at the warehouse of Sincerely Ghana Limited where the pads were produced.

Miss Universe Ghana 2017, Ruth Quarshie, on behalf of Mrs Muntari, presented the items to the sector Minister, Cynthia Morrison

Ms Quarshie delivered a statement from Mrs Muntari stating that, “the sanitary pads are to empower the vulnerable women and make them feel confident about themselves in these times of crisis.”

Mrs Muntari, who is also the current National Director of Miss Universe Ghana added, “I felt the need to support kayayei by providing them with my sanitary pads because I’ve always been a firm believer in giving back to society”.

“Especially now that the COVID-19 pandemic has brought about so much hardship, it is important to not only be kind to ourselves but also to others,” she said.

The Gender Minister Mrs. Morrison said it was amazing to see young ladies like Menaye Donkor Muntari take initiatives to support the less privileged in the society.

“Menaye called me with passion and I could see that she sincerely wanted to help. The 2000 sanitary pads will go a long way to help the beneficiaries,” she emphasized.

The Minister thanked the management and staff of Sincerely Ghana Limited for the kind gesture.

She said this is the time for individuals and organisations to give to the needy because if the donations come at a later time the expected positive effects may not be felt so much.
