Extended lockdown has hit economically weaker sector the most, especially females. Closed markets, lost jobs and shortage of resources have resulted in unavailability of a number of essential commodities, including sanitary pads. Since lack of proper hygiene during periods cause hazardous effects on health, absence of this necessary stuff put these women into the most vulnerable condition.
Pinkishe Foundation primarily deals with the subject related to menstrual hygiene. We regularly visit and provide free sanitary pads along with menstrual hygiene awareness workshops to poor women and girls under our Padbank program (https://www.pinkishe.org/padbank)
Our Pink warrior Ms. Priyabha, leader Noida Branch carried out Pad donation drive at Kanya Gurukul Ashram ,Gav sorkha, Sector-115, Noida , on 28th May, 2020 . She handed over sanitary pads and hair accessories to the ashram authorities for 110 underprivileged girls living in the ashram. She could not directly distribute the materials to the girls as the authority did not allow at this time .The girls benefited from the donation were very happy to receive help during these testing times.
Social distancing was followed throughout the drive. Pinkishe Foundation is grateful to Ms Piyabha and all our contributors for supporting us in the noble cause.
