MY BLOODY GALENTINE - LONDON
In 2016 there were 65.3 million refugees and Internally Displaced People (“IDP”) - half (32+ million) of whom are women and girls.
Imagine having to flee your home with only the clothes on your back.
Imagine traveling thousands of miles by foot for months.
Imagine having no toilets.
Imagine having no fresh water to drink or wash with.
Imagine living in a refugee camp for years where there are no private sanitation procedures or facilities for women and girls.
Now imagine you are having your period….
VERVE members and friends are invited to join us for Bloody Mary’s, Frittatas, and a bloody good cause!
