If you are tired, learn to rest, not quit.
2019 has had more water breaks than sprints and dashes, but in the quiet moments, I have recharged and found new strength.
One of the ideas that was born in the extended water break was ‘Endo warriors at the Coast’, an idea that I have dabbled with and shelved many times over the years. But, when the time is right, things align, and ideas are actualized. Lives are changed.
Without a doubt, I am convinced that angels exist, that God sends divine helpers to hold our hands, provide solutions and remind us of His steadfast presence.
On 10th November we had our first support group meeting. Days later, my heart is still full. Full of joy, peace, hope and expectation. A group of 10 ladies assembled as strangers, and left three and half hours later, refreshed, and with a larger network of women in Mombasa.
We had an interactive session where we shared our journeys, talked about menstruation, menstrual hygiene products, and the herbs and products that are easily available in Mombasa. It was insightful, informative and refreshing.
Freedom for Girls donated a pack of reusable pads and liners for each lady. We left with both our hearts and hands full.
Shufaa shared a video with snippets of the event on her YouTube channel. You see what I meant about angels?
A huge thank-you to everyone who came and made this day possible.
We have some upcoming events:
26th January 2019 – Endo warriors support meet up
23rd March 2019 – Endometriosis Awareness Event – Mombasa Edition
Details will follow. If you would like to learn more, or even plug in, please drop me a line on firstname.lastname@example.org.
Our individual voices may be faint, but together we are an army of warriors, creating a beautiful symphony, that will be heard.
