                                           It’s just Period (.)

It’s 21st century, roughly around 800 million women and girls have their periods, and approximately 500 million women lacks proper, safe, clean menstrual products, and here we are not talking about the luxury hygiene products but basic products like- pads. In many countries women are still using a dirty cloth, dry leaves or any other absorbing material during their periods. Not only such usage increases the chances of vaginal infections, but also ovarian cancer in women.
In India, approximately 88 percent women do not have access to proper menstrual hygiene products. There are many to blame on these poor conditions of women, the most supreme reason is patriarchal system which existed in India, which ingrained an idea in the society that periods are impure and women when have their menstruation cycle have to be isolated. The society is still carrying this idea in their mind but it is high time that the society starts accepting that mensuration in normal and there is a much need of hygiene products for same.

I am Manshaa Dhar, a law student, working with Hamari Pahchan NGO, considered to raise funds for this concern. Hamari Panchan NGO will be using these funds carefully, to provide adequate hygiene supplies to the underprivileged women and girls who are not able to provide themselves with necessary supplies during their menstrual cycle.

Let’s come together and normalize periods, and help the needy.
Cause at the end it’s Just Period.
Thank you for your support!
