Pinky Bank at Tonko
Pinky Bank, Tonko, Jharkhand
7th January 2024
In Tonko Village, Jharkhand, about 60 vulnerable women and girls received free sanitary napkins for two months. These women cannot afford menstrual hygiene products and remain at high risk for infections and complications from using random pieces of clothing. For the last year or so they have been using pads from our bank with a remarkable reduction in these infections.
Access to free sanitary pads empowers women and girls by giving them control over their menstrual health. It helps maintain their dignity and self-esteem, reducing potential embarrassment or discomfort associated with menstruation.
In these rural areas families facing financial constraints, purchasing sanitary pads may be a significant expense. Providing them for free helps alleviate this economic burden and ensures that all women and girls can manage their menstrual health with dignity.
Providing free sanitary pads helps ensure that women and girls have access to essential menstrual hygiene products, regardless of their socio-economic status. This promotes good menstrual hygiene practices and reduces the risk of infections and other health issues.
