HELP US FIGHT PERIOD POVERTY!

Hamari Pahchan has launched the Sukhad Campaign wherein we are striving 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. 350/-
Sukhad Kit for 5 women for 3 months = Rs. 1750/-
Sukhad Kit for 1 woman = Rs.1400/- for a year.
Sukhad Kit for 5 women = Rs.7000/- for a year.

 
88% of the menstruating population in India still uses rags, sand and ash instead of sanitary napkins. 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. Poor menstrual hygiene can negatively impact the health and safety of menstruators, which is why improving access to menstrual hygiene products is crucial.

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


To put this in motion, we launched the Sukhad Campaign where in we are striving 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 in order to educate women about disposal methods and other necessary habits related to menstrual hygiene.

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

I am Rakshitha, a law student working with Hamari Pahchan. Our organisation has distributed more than 25,000+ Sanitary Kits to underprivileged women in slums, at GB Road, under flyovers and at red lights and will continue to do so in order to expand our reach.

A small contribution from you will make a big change in their lives.


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

Your contribution for 1 woman would be essential to bring change in the society. We wish to help at least 50,000 menstruators by providing them with access to healthy and safe periods.
