"Menstruation is a physiological phenomenon. However, it has been linked to many religious traditions and taboos in developing countries. Menstrual management is still a source of social embarrassment, with such euphemisms as time of the month, period, or on the rag still in common use. In the developing world, menstrual management is not only difficult; it also may have serious adverse impact on the lives of women. Reusable menstrual products (including menstrual cups) are more economical than disposable ones. The menstrual cup has been explored as a means of menstrual hygiene management in developing countries." - Dr. Shah
The aim of this fund raising is to provide menstrual cups to low socioeconomic women as a safe, convenient and economical alternative to menstrual pads, tampons or rags.
