During this pandemic, Punjab Police has distributed free sanitary pads as part of the #SheFirst campaign by Paree. The Punjab Police has supported the cause by ensuring that essential menstrual hygiene products reach as many women and girls as possible during the outbreak of Coronavirus.
Women’s hygiene is critical, as they are more susceptible to infections during this time. The upkeep of personal cleanliness and hygiene has become important to staying safe and protected. Keeping this in mind, young Indian homegrown brand, Paree, took up the cause to reach out to women in this time of need and to encourage them to prioritize their health. Committed to making menstrual hygiene products available to all women, young Indian homegrown sanitary napkin brand Paree decided to reach out to women in need and introduced the initiative #SheFirst because they believe that #PadsAreEssential specially during COVID 19 pandemic.
