We’re happy to let you know ‪#‎replenish‬ is a drop off point for Melbourne Period Project. If you want to get involved buy a pack of tampons or sanitary pads and drop them into us They’ll go to a homeless woman so she can manage her period with dignity. We’d love for you to get involved… ‪#‎homeless‬ ‪#‎dignity‬ ‪#‎kindness‬ ‪#‎karma‬

Life can be tricky and tough when your period arrives unexpectedly, and you’ve got nothing on hand to manage it. But imagine this happening when you’re homeless and sleeping on the streets.

Imagine fleeing domestic violence, hiding, alone and afraid, and your period arrives. But you have absolutely nothing to use and no money to buy anything. Unfortunately for the women we help, this is a reality they suffer through every single month.

Providing women experiencing homelessness with sanitary items is what we specialise in. Our team hit the streets regularly to connect with and find these women to offer not just sanitary items, but friendship, support, and information such as where to find showers, food, shelter and clothing.  For more information :
