The pandemic had locked down not only the nation but also the hygiene and wellness of millions of rural girls struggling to lead a dignified life.

Under the Diwali campaign #GiveWithDignityTM, Mukul Madhav Foundation is reinstating hope and faith in all the rural women associated with Sobati by procuring sanitary napkins from them for distribution across the country, eradicating the stigma around menstruation and making menstrual hygiene available to each and every girl.
