A gift from sunlight / Drying device

A gift from sunlight

Period poverty — a lack of access to feminine hygiene products due to poverty — is felt by 1.2 billion women globally. • When the organization issued our device "A gift from the sunlight" to women, women use solar energy to power the disinfection equipment without incurring additional costs. • The UV LED strip used has a long life (about 10000h). • When disinfecting, cover it with a UV-proof cloth, which will not do harm to the human body. • And by a $4.56 product, women can be protected from many diseases which cost way more, so we consider it’s affordable for them.
