Helping End Period Poverty
At London Gynaecology, it goes without saying that women’s health is a subject close to our heart. We are continually focussed on delivering the best care to our patients and we also try to help women who we don’t see in our clinics. Over the years, we have supported many charitable causes that are focussed on improving the lives and healthcare of women.
This Sunday, consultant gynaecologist and keen runner, Mr Pisal, is putting on his running shoes to run the Chicago marathon to help end period poverty with the Gift Wellness Foundation.
Sadly, studies show that 1 in 10 girls and women in the UK cannot access feminine hygiene products during their period (known as period poverty) and this is only anticipated to worsen in the current financial climate. The Gift Wellness Foundation aims to eliminate period poverty in Britain’s most deprived communities by 2025.
We have always been humbled by the generosity and kindness of patients, colleagues and friends, who like to support our charitable efforts, so if you would like to donate to this cause, help Mr Pisal over the finish line and take us closer to eliminating period poverty, please click here.
London Gynaecology are proud to have donated the first £1000.
