With the motive of mitigating the impacts of COVID-19 pandemic on girls’ and women’s ability to manage their menstruation and their health, a set of washable reusable sanitary pad was distributed to each member of 17 different women groups of Japhe village located in Tamakoshi Rural Municipality (around 150 km north of Kathmandu in Dolakha district in central Nepal). All together 503 sets of washable reusable sanitary pad were distributed.
Indira Kafle, secretary of Laliguras Women Group stated “even in the normal times, poverty and lack of basic services often cause menstrual health and hygiene needs to go unmet. In this context, the support of reusable sanitary pads and the orientation about menstruation, its management and the use of washable reusable sanitary pads will be very helpful for our personal hygiene management during the time of pandemic.”
