Women who don’t have adequate sources to enable menstrual hygiene. Ignorance towards personal hygiene during menstruation can causes infection and other diseases. Meeting the hygiene needs of adolescent girls and women enables human rights and dignity. The unprivileged women in our society don’t get the freedom to practice good menstrual health and hygiene. Not only these women are deprived of sanitary pads but also of knowledge about them.
Recognizing the importance of this issue, Hamari Pehchan started a SUKHAD project which commits to strive to increase confidence, knowledge, and improved access to materials and facilities necessary for menstrual hygiene. This project started with the objective of reaching out to at least 50,000 women if possible and create awareness about this cause. We distribute Sukhad kits consisting of sanitary pads, soap, and disposable paper envelopes to unprivileged women helping them understanding the seriousness and usefulness of this personal hygiene.
Per kit price:
Sukhad kit for 1 woman = Rs. 1,400/-
Sukhad kits for 5 women = Rs 7,000/-
SUKHAD KIT includes 24 packets of the sanitary pad, 6 packets of soap, and disposable paper envelopes.
Hamari Pehchan with the help of GIRL UP AZADI organized a distribution drive on 13th March. They have also reached the Vasant Vihar where they distributed bio-degradable sanitary pads and taught them how to dispose of these pads during this pandemic. With the objective that personal hygiene is a basic need, we have also reached to the sex workers of GB road to bring their attention to this cause.
Hamari Pehchan will still keep standing with these women and we need you to also be a part of this. Your donation matters and can change someone's life for good. Your small contribution to our project can make a big difference. You can also donate your time by volunteering and helping our society or you can help us raise the fund with which we can make the Sukhad kits.
