Wing Woman Lebanon

The miracle moment

How we started..

The idea of WingWoman Lebanon was conceived at a social sewing club for women in Lebanon’s Chatila refugee camp during the COVID-19 confinement. Many of these women were dismissed for lacking employable skills, but in truth their potential was simply being overlooked. They were, and continue to be driven, ambitious and enterprising. In parallel, the economic crisis in Lebanon continued to worsen, causing a rise in period poverty as safe and high-quality period products became too expensive.

How to wash our Reusable Pads?

Why reusable period pads?

Period poverty now affects 76% of those who menstruate in Lebanon.

Those in refugee and migrant communities are disproportionately affected. Increasingly, however, women in the wider Lebanese communities are also suffering. Studies have shown that period poverty can lead to mental and physical health problems and the issue is contributing to reduced school attendance and rising unemployment in women. Worldwide, girls are currently missing between 10 and 20% of school because of their periods.

Our goal of providing decent work opportunities for women alongside affordable access to sustainable hygiene items guided us towards reusable period pad production.
