You know, the life in a refugee camp is not easy. All of us, we are refugees here, and our workers, like you see, are mainly women. So women are the first beneficiaries. The pads are made by refugees, then refugees earn some money, then UNHCR buy the pads and distribute them for free. So some of us, we are feeling better than at home, because of work. (Ibrahim, Kyaka II Refugee Camp, Uganda)
