Extra Information: 

Women in the above situations either sacrifice money that they cannot afford or are forced to use unhygienic and degrading methods of dealing with menstruation.

Packs of sanitary products can cost as little as £1. Providing collection points would allow students to contribute to women in need in the local community, in a tangible way. A similar scheme has been set up by the Women's Society at Bristol University.
