Chandigarh, December 10, 2019: Government Home Science college conducted menstrual hygiene campaign for students in collaboration with Unicharm’s feminine hygiene brand Sofy.
The objective of the campaign was to create awareness about menstrual hygiene by breaking myths and discrediting shame related to menstruation among girls students. Sofy distributed its environment-friendly and anti-bacterial premium quality sanitary pads free of cost to approximately 100 students in both B.Sc and M.Sc hostel. Girls were sensitized to consider the menstrual phase as a blessing and follow proper standards/methods of hygiene.
