HELP US FIGHT PERIOD POVERTY!

Hamari Pahchan has launched the Sukhad Campaign through which we strive to provide 50,000 Sukhad Kits to underprivileged women. Each kit contains 24 packets of pads, 6 soaps and 50-60 disposal envelopes.

Sukhad Kit for 1 woman for 3 months = Rs. 450/-
Sukhad Kit for 5 women for 3 months = Rs. 2,250/-
Sukhad Kit for 1 woman = Rs.1800/- for a year.
Sukhad Kit for 5 women = Rs.9000/- for a year.

 
97% of the menstruating population in rural India still use old clothes for pads. Only 36% of the 336 million menstruating women in India use sanitary napkins. With the coming of Covid-19 crisis, this number underwent a dramatic decline.

During the Covid-19 era, menstrual hygiene was forced to take a back seat. Struggling to acquire even one meal a day, many women went back to their old menstrual customs of using ash or hay wrapped in cloth. As per a recent study, more than 11 crore adolescent girls are vulnerable to poor menstrual hygiene. 

Current efforts by the government and a few individuals alone will not suffice. This cause warrants our attention and contribution.

We at Hamari Pahchan seek to raise menstrual health awareness among menstruators, and other sections of the society. The primary goal is to challenge the taboo around menstruation. We want to normalize period conversations not just among adolescent females, but among their families as well.


To put this in motion, we launched the Sukhad Campaign through which we are aiming to provide 50,000 Sukhad Kits to underprivileged women. Each kit contains 24 packets of pads, 6 soaps and 50-60 disposal envelopes. Along with distribution drives, we also conduct workshops to educate women about methods of disposal and other necessary habits vital for menstrual hygiene.

Majority of us are privileged enough to have simple access to menstrual hygiene. But there are millions of women out there who do not have the same luxuries.

In just ₹450, you can guarantee 3 months of menstrual hygiene and comfort to an underprivileged woman.

I am Celina, a final year student working with Hamari Pahchan. I have been working for this cause relentlessly with the help of this organization. 
This year, we have distributed more than 25,000+ Sanitary Kits to the underprivileged women in slums, at GB Road, under the flyovers and on red lights and will continue to do so in order to expand our reach.

Your small contribution can be life changing.


We have been conducting distribution drives from the start and aim to conduct these every week in different areas. 

Your contribution to 1 woman would have the power to bring transformative to change to society. We wish to help at least 50,000 menstruators by ensuring safe and hygienic periods.
