An awareness session on menstrual hygiene in Sec-42 Community Centre. As a part of this initiative, sanitary napkins were distributed to the female sanitation staff and to make its effort a sustainable one, the company also announced to conduct monthly distribution of pads to them.
The event was presided over by Chandigarh MC Councilors Ms. Heera Negi . As a CSR initiative, Lion Services. has conducted a series of such events in Chandigarh over the past few weeks to mark Menstrual Hygiene Day and spread awareness about the topic. During the session, the staff interacted with a gynaecologist who educated them on the importance of menstrual hygiene and also answered their queries.
Commenting on the announcement made by the company to distribute sanitary napkins on a monthly basis, Ms. Heera Negi said, “In India, there are so many women who can’t even afford a basic necessity such as sanitary napkins. A great percentage of women are simply not aware of the importance of maintaining good hygiene during menstruation. In such a scenario, taking the initiative of distributing pads to sanitation staff on a regular basis is a brilliant step by Lion Services Limited. We extend our full support to them.”
