A woman’s menstrual health is crucial to her well-being and also to the well-being of her family and community. But too often — especially in the developing world — mindsets, customs and institutional biases prevent women from getting the menstrual health care they need. Menstrual hygiene continues to be amongst the most challenging development issues today.
Menstruation  many a times, it brings with it rules, restrictions, isolation and changed expectations from the girls by the society. This changed attitude towards girls such as restrictions on their self expressions, schooling, mobility and freedom has far reaching consequences on the mindset of women.

At least 500 million women and girls around the world do not have access to basic menstrual hygiene management facilities. During their periods, more than 77 percent of menstruation women in India utilize an old cloth that is frequently reused, ashes, newspapers, dried leaves, and husk sand.

During their menstruating days, women are prohibited from participating in day-to-day activities. They are not allowed to enter the house. A woman must be “purified” before she is allowed to return to her family and they are forbidden from performing any rituals.
During these difficult times, underprivileged women who lack access, means, or information about the subject suffer, and the TABOO persists.

To continue this campaign through my NGO Hamari Panchan Foundation, I,Vrinda Agrawal recently started a nationwide campaign  to make people aware about menstrual health and hygiene. It also provides information to dispel myths and taboos surrounding this issue  

On World Menstrual Hygiene Day, Hamari Pahchan NGO distributed Sanitary Kits and it came in limelight on Republic Bharat news channel:

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. 

Hamari Pahchan NGO has distributed more than 30,000 Sukhad Kits in 2021 and their aim is to distribute at least 50,000 Sukhad Kits to women. These kits would include 24 packets of Sanitary Pads 6 packets of Soap and disposable paper envelopes.

Sukhad Kit for 1 woman = Rs.1400/-
Sukhad Kt for 5 women = Rs.7,000/-
