During this Covid-19 pandemic and its new emerging strains one after another, the situation is becoming uncertain. There is still a rise in transmission rate and deaths with Covid-19. Plus, as all of us are aware that Menstruation is still taken as taboo and stigma in many parts of our country which needs to be normalized. It’s necessary to talk openly and make people aware about dignified menstruation. Girls shouldn’t halt from taking various opportunities only because of menstruation, a natural process.
So, mediating the present situation of Covid-19 and women’s menstrual health; IDEAS for LA Grandee cordially with Cheli Nepal Organization and in collaboration with LEO club of Pokhara Destination, Rotaract club of Pokhara Midtown, Nepal Health Corps and NSU LA Grandee organized the “Ek cheli Ek Teej Upahar Program 2021″ to support needy ones by giving them a gift package of Sanitary pads, medicated hand washing soap and disposable Masks.
