In the middle of August, CARE International in Lao PDR, together with the Real relief funded by the World Bank, held an online workshop at Sengkeo Garment Factory to produce washable Safepads. The activity aimed to train garment workers in new skills while supporting CARE to produce washable menstrual pads that can be distributed to partners and ethnic women in communities, or those who have difficulty accessing clean menstrual pads during their periods.
