Mr. Prerrit Mansingh has braved a lot in life himself, his personal turmoil connecting him empathetically with the pathos of the underprivileged. He has been striving hard for the betterment of the society not only through the NGO but through motivational training in his career as well as personal life. He, along with the support of his family members and volunteers have left no stone unturned, and now they're embarking on a mission to help women with a fundamental necessity - Sanitary Pads.
We know, Menstrual Hygiene in India is a bigger problem than commonly known. Only 12% of 335 million menstruating women in India use sanitary napkins and the rest 88% resort themselves to harmful alternatives like unsterilized cloth, ashes, sand and the like of which one shudders to even think. These alternatives make our 88% women more vulnerable to Reproductive Tract Infection (RTI). The reasons behind the unhygienic and self-insulting menstrual practices are affordability and availability with a social stigma that cordons it off into a vicious circle. Ergo, we at Aayom Welfare Society with your support, want to shatter this unbreakable vow of silence on periods in India on Menstrual Hygiene Day, May 28.
Would you please help us reach this basic necessity to our women of lesser means? Looking at our women who are suffering from this deprivation, we need to raise at least Rs. 10,00,000/- for this cause. Your every contribution will be a cobble on the road to providing them with Safe Menstrual Hygiene.
