Project Befikar: Help Poor Women with Sanitary Napkins

Menstruation is a monthly event in the life of women. Good hygiene during menstruation is a must for ensuring good health of women. Lack of hygiene can lead to infections, which are often not treated and can lead to long-term consequences like Cervical Cancer. Use of clean absorbent materials like sanitary napkins is an essential part of maintaining hygiene during menstruation.

Many women in India, especially from urban slum areas, cannot afford the expenses of sanitary napkins. As a result, they tend to ignore the health consequences and run the risk of infections and diseases. This adversely affects the poor women and pushes them further into poverty.


Though the government has started with free sanitary napkins distribution in some states, the scheme is plagued by lack of supplies, poor quality and an absent demand from users.

Rural Health Training Centre, Madanpur Khadar, located in South-East Delhi caters to more than 70,000 population, providing them affordable primary healthcare services. It also provides services to adolescent girls and women to protect hem against reproductive tract infections.


 Team RHTC

The RHTC now intends to provide subsidized distribution of sanitary napkins to the women. The winged sanitary napkins are quality products available at the most economical price of Rs. 23 for 8 pieces by the Government of India's HLFPPT.



Rs. 25,000 donation can help us get more than a thousand sanitary napkin packs that would provide the poor women with safe and hygienic menstruation.

Dear Supporters,

With great happiness, I would like to inform that we have exceeded our target of Rs. 20,000 in terms of online and offline donations. And all this was possible because of your trust and belief in this cause and the people behind it.
With your donations, we ordered reusable cloth sanitary napkins, "My Pad" from Goonj, as well as disposable sanitary napkins "Sakhi" from HLFPPT.
While we are providing reusable cloth napkins to the women who have never used a sanitary napkin before, we are providing disposable ones to those who have ever used a sanitary napkin. As per team discussion, we are giving disposable sanitary napkin having 8 winged-pads, with an MRP of Rs. 35 at a nominal price of Rs. 10/- This amount helps the recipient to give value to the product they are receiving. Also, this sum would be reused for purchasing more napkins.
Once again, a big thank you! Please share this campaign to generate more funds.

Regards.
