Donate a sanitary kit campaign –

A woman is someone who rears , raises and nurture and doesn’t care whether she is being nurtured properly or not . Ladli while organizing various health camps have come across the problem of menstrual hygiene and its irregularities , here the question arises that periods being the most natural occurring of woman’s body still she herself is unaware about its well being and hygiene making us realize that how deprived our Ladlis’ are in terms of knowledge about themselves and their body . Therefore , in order to cater this problem and make each woman confident and well aware about the process of menstruation we have launched a campaign for donation of sanitary kit . The campaign aims at educating the masses that how important is to educate the women about their menstruall hygiene similar to that of donating a pad . Therefor the kit not only includes the pad but also teaches the woman about its usage, application and maintenance.
