Thousands of women farmers gathered around Delhi borders to protest the Centre’s three farm laws, a major issue they faced was that of menstrual hygiene.
In an attempt to help these women, residents of neighbouring villages have opened their doors to allow women to take shower and provide them with hot water as hygiene facilities at the border points are not satisfactory.
Taking note of the situation, Khalsa Aid has stepped in to provide support to women.
