I am nandini, a law student who observes and is concerned about our indian society . Walking though the streets of India I see lots of people lacking basic living facilities.One of the most disappointing fact that I have noticed is underprivileged women using unhygienic and old ways during menstrual period. According to the survey of 2020, Out of a total of ~40 crore menstruating women in India, less than 20% use sanitary pads. In urban areas, this number only goes up to 52%. This indicates that nearly half of even urban-based women use unhygienic methods for period protection, making them vulnerable to health issues. Women living in rural areas are living on the worse conditions during menstruation. They aren’t aware about the good and hygienic ways to deal with menstrual period. They have been using old methods which are no longer hygienic and acceptable. It is very important to spread awareness among underprivileged women and provide them some help. Helping them will lead to a noble cause and development of our country. Poor menstrual hygiene or using old and unacceptable ways for periods invite hazardous health problems. Contributing our best to help underprivileged women will bring out lots of good in our society.
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.
Hamari pahchan ngo will be distributing Sanitary Kits to these underprivileged women so that they have the proper means and access to good hygiene.
Sukhad Kit for 1 woman = Rs.1400/-
Sukhad Kt for 5 women = Rs.7,000/-
