Makkal Needhi Maiam founded by actor Kamal Haasan launched a nationwide movement called ‘ Unstain’ – #NoMoreKarai, to reach out to underprivileged girls and provide them with sanitary napkins and undergarments. The focus would be on Tamilnadu.
To start with, 500 kits containing sanitary napkins and undergarments would be distributed. According to him, many girls were dropping out of school across the State due to lack of menstrual hygiene. He plans to distribute 5000 kits in the next six months. In order to distribute the kits to the rural areas, he has joined hands with Rotary Club and several other volunteers. There have been many instances when girls skipped exams and sports activities as they could not afford to buy pads and were using pieces of cloth. This venture would benefit girls from underprivileged families.
