Menstruation is a monthly event in the life of women. Good hygiene during menstruation is a must for ensuring the 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. The 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 a lack of supplies, poor quality, and an absent demand from users.
In Mahakumbh-2021 we are planning to distribute sanitary Pads /Masks / Fruits to child beggars in the Haridwar area. With the Support of 86 volunteers, we will Distribute sanitary Pads / Masks / Fruits to beggars in Haridwar.
Per sanitary napkins cost 5rs, we are planning to give 4 sanitary napkins that cost 20rs, so that we can cover 1000 people. 20*1000=20,000
