It’s unusual for a woman to approach a taxi driver for a sanitary towel when they find themselves in need – but this local taxi driver wants that to change.

He took to his Facebook post to share this;

I take it upon myself to buy pads for the children that board my taxi every month, it’s only R20. Some can afford them and some don’t. But even those who do sometimes forget them at the worst times. Be real man and look after our woman and children.

According to the South African Human Rights Commission, one in 10 girls in Africa miss school during menstruation due to the lack of availability of menstrual hygiene products, which denies these girls their basic right of quality education.
