Blessing Our Sisters

This is a little mentioned part of The Gathering's ministry to the neediest women & girls in our community.

For a few years now we have regularly been collecting sanitary pads and other sanitary products to give to the neediest and most vulnerable women in the community.

Initially this was aimed at the older girls attending our Homework Club because so many teenage girls simply miss school when they're menstruating because they have little or no access to the necessary products to help.

 The need for this has also dramatically increased during COVID, as household budgets are stretched beyond belief, and whilst the government has removed the VAT on these products they remain too expensive for most, especially for those who regularly attend our weekly Soup Kitchen.

What a joy for The Gathering to step up and love on our precious sisters in such a practical way, especially when we help keep girls in school!
