It is already a habit for us to speak of health, but speaking of hygiene may be unnecessary for people in African countries.According to the daily mail, some girls in Uganda, Africa, have begun to embrace hygiene, and have begun to publicize the need for health through singing, acting and other forms.
The picture shows two girls singing about hygiene.
To everyone's surprise, they joined the health club and made the sanitary napkins themselves.
The picture shows two girls, Long Longok (left), 15, and Martha Ibilat (right), 11, studying sewing sanitary napkins at a st. Mary's school.

However, they have to stay at home for several days because of menstruation.
