For the first time, the Oncology Clinic of the Georgetown Public Hos-pital (GPHC) has been outfitted with a sanitary pad dispenser.

The donation was made possible by the charity Girls Inspire Girls—a non-profit organisation comprising a group of women whose aim is to make a difference in the lives of women and girls in whatever way they can.

Founder of the organization, Sasha Pollard, said that the donation is tailored towards assisting with the emergency needs of women and girls visiting the clinic for chemotherapy and other associated treatment.
