We are partnering with Myna Mahila Foundation to help support the Mumbai slum community
Despite a pandemic, human needs remain constant: food, water, and shelter remain necessities regardless of ongoing circumstances. Moreover, many fail to consider another constant: menstruation. Although purchasing food and menstrual products from nearby convenience stores or having them delivered may seem like the obvious solution, it is out of the question for the daily wage worker during COVID-19.
A vast number of people in the slum communities earn their living by daily wage jobs. Due to the strict lockdown in India, these people have lost their means to earn a living. With no money for food and a lack of sanitary products, there seems no end to their dire situation for the near future.
Let's join hands and collectively help these communities in need.
