I'm Laxmi Priya Soni, a 3rd Year Law Student from Gitam School of law Visakhapatnam, and an intern with Hamari Pahchan NGO. I strongly feel and agree that a woman's menstrual health is crucial to her well-being and also to the well-being of her family and community. Menstrual hygiene still continues to be amongst the most challenging development issues today for unprivileged women. Still the unprivileged women follow the old ways and they are not aware about the proper hygenic ways to deal with menstrual period . Menstruation is still considered a taboo in the Indian society. The main reasons for this taboo still being relevant in the Indian society due to illiteracy, poverty and lack of awareness about menstrual health and hygiene.
After conducting a survey in the slums, it was discovered that there are women who are suffering from various problems due to non-maintenance of their menstrual health.
I'll be distributing Sanitary Kits to these underprivileged women so that they have the proper means and access to good hygiene.
Sukhad Kit for 1 woman = Rs.1400/-
Sukhad Kt for 5 women = Rs.7,000/-
