My name is Himanshi Gupta. I am 15 years old and in Grade 11 at Welham Girls’ School.
COVID-19 has impacted millions of people. The worst-hit are the poor, migrants, and daily wage workers. For menstruators from financially weak backgrounds, the issue is compounded by the inaccessibility of menstrual hygiene measures. What we take for granted - sanitary napkins is a luxury for them. The solution is to give them a menstrual hygiene pack that contains 5 reusable pads. These are cost-effective, last long and are not too bulky.
The pads are reusable, create no trash and are cost-effective. Disposable sanitary pads have to be bought repeatedly, cost INR 50-100 per month, and create massive disposal problems. The cost of this kit (including distribution) is just INR 300.
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.
