Hi, I am Tarishi Parmar,
Supporting India For the Cause of Sanitation.
Women and girls from low-income backgrounds have been facing a massive menstrual hygiene crisis due to the pandemic. The only source of sanitary napkins for most school-going girls was from government schemes that supply them through government schools, which remain closed amidst the lockdown. Similarly, minimum wage daily labourers women/migrants workers and those from poor homes are unable to afford sanitary napkins as they suddenly have no or very less income. This leads to them using unhygienic methods like paper, rags, etc. This leads to UTIs and other health problems.
Our aim is to provide immediate relief for menstrual health issues faced by women who are from low-income groups, in collaboration with the Live To Inspire, through the distribution of sanitary napkins. They are also educated about the best menstrual hygiene practices.
COVID-19 has impacted millions of people. The worst-hit are the poor, migrants, and daily wage workers. There has been a surge in cases & the situation will only get worse before it gets better. For girls and women from financially weak backgrounds, the issue is compounded by the inaccessibility of menstrual hygiene measures. While we take menstrual hygiene for granted, it is a luxury for them.
The cost of this hygiene kit (including distributing it) is just INR 15 per month per girl. I request all of you to support my campaign so that we can also contribute to their well-being in our own small little way. Let’s come together and do our bit.
