During the ongoing lockdowns across the country, along with the stress of maintaining good health, women and girls are also facing the additional worry of access to menstrual hygiene products. Shut markets, uncertain store timings and job losses, further contribute to lack of access to sanitary napkins.

On World Menstrual Hygiene Day, community mobilizers and field staff of HPPI’s Action Against Child Labour Project in Panipat, Haryana, decided to address this issue and distributed 1,000 sanitary pads among women and girls from low-income households in the slum areas, and among factory workers and wage workers.

Along with sanitary pads, they were also made aware of various hygienic practices and ways to stay healthy during their menstruation. The team began the distribution drive in Badhawa Ram Colony, Vikasnagar, Noor Wala, Jyoti Colony and the slum areas in Bichpuri. The team aims to continue this drive and reach out to people in need of this basic essential during the lockdown period.

Menstrual Hygiene Day is an annual awareness day celebrated on May 28 to highlight the importance of menstrual hygiene management.
