關於我們 About Us

每個人都有權利享有自主無憂的月事

Everyone deserves a free period.

Free Periods HK 是香港唯一以提供免費月事用品以支援低收入社群的團體,由小刺蝟 happeriod、MenstruAction、M Cup月經呢啲事,三個自2014年便開始關注月經污名的團體組成。

我們發現不少來經者(尤其低收入社群)為節省開支,往往會忽略月事用品的質量,甚至減少替換次數,導致使用時間過長,增加潛在健康風險。

Free Periods HK將推動「買一贈一」、公眾收集及轉贈、月經教育工作坊及月經教育大使培訓等活動,連結不同階層的來經者,與有需要社群分享免費月事用品,令月事不再造成任何人的身心及經濟負擔。透過全面的月經教育和公開捐贈活動,希望最終能提高社會對月經貧窮的關注及認識。

Free Periods HK is the only charitable group in Hong Kong providing support to low-income women through the supply of free sustainable menstrual products. The group is founded and run by experienced individuals from Happeriod, MenstruAction and M Cup M Stuff, 3 groups that highlight the issue of menstrual stigma in Hong Kong since as early as 2014.

We have realised that in Hong Kong, there are menstruators (especially low-income groups) who sacrifice the quality of menstrual products they use or even intentionally reduce the frequency of changing for clean menstrual product in order to save money. Using menstrual products beyond the suggested time of use can lead to unideal menstrual hygiene and various potential health threats.

Free Periods HK is going to advocate a unique Buy 1 Give 1 distribution model of free sustainable menstrual products, collect public donation of fund and menstrual products, organise menstrual education workshops and train menstrual education ambassadors. Through connecting menstruators from different social backgrounds and supplying free menstrual products to those in need, we set out to relieve the mental, physical and financial burdens on low-income groups caused by period poverty and raise public awareness of period poverty.
