They have been asked to do a talk on contraception on Monday 2nd of July. For the talk, they are working with another more well known non-governmental organisation (NGO) Medecins Sans Frontier (MSF) who are able to supply condoms, the pill and IUD’s to the refugees at the centre. Sarah and Lauren plan to discuss these options with women and explain the importance of tracking their periods.
