During the pandemic, one side where the entire lockdown was in place, the other side all the shops and markets were closed. During this time, women and girls living in the regional village and slums had to face difficulties. Due to non availability of sanitary napkins during menstrual period, women used non-traditional means such as cloth, cotton and newspaper. It could increase the risk of infection and also the risk of terrible diseases like cancer. In compulsion these women had to do it because of lockdown an economic problem in the family.
In such a situation, RSKS India organized a program of sanitary distribution in remote rural areas under the Covid-19 relief program in collaboration with GlobalGiving. Under this program, sanitary napkins pads were distributed to more than 1000 migrant, deprived, laborers, needy, slum girls and women.
In such a situation, this kind of relief brought a wave of happiness in the face of the needy women because due to economic problem she was unable to buy sanitary napkins but now for their safety they have sanitary napkins. She will be able to secure her menstrual health. One woman told us that there is only one shop where sanitary napkins were available but that shop was also closed in lockdown but now she is very happy as she got free sanitary napkin by the Organization for which she thanks.
