Menstrual Health and Hygiene survey

On the 23rd and 24th of November, our team in partnership with @Volunteer for Bangladesh went into the slums of Korail and Rayerbazaar in Dhaka for a much needed talk with the women and girls about practicing menstrual hygiene.

We got to learn about the challenges that they face while on their periods through our question and answer session with each one of them. The awareness campaign was conducted in other parts of the country including Narayanganj and Gopalganj. The girls in the given regions were responsive and showed much enthusiasm to learn about menstrual hygiene management despite the heavy stigma around menstruation still in practice.
