Video Volunteers' community correspondent Sunita Kasera spoke to the women of Jamoora, a village in Rajasthan's Karauli district, on the inconveniences faced by them due to the lockdown. Since markets remain shut, women of this village are unable to buy sanitary pads for their personal hygiene. Police personnel shoo them away if they try going to the nearest markets.
Neeraj Sharma, Block Development Officer of Karauli district was made aware of this problem and she along with Sunita travelled to the village to jointly address the women. Sharma said the government anyway distributes sanitary pads to women and school-going girls. But because of the lockdown, there has been a gap.
Under the 'Stree Swabhimaan Abhiyan', 48 panchayats that come under Neeraj Sharma's block will receive personal hygiene products for women. Sunita spoke to one of the beneficiaries of this movement who thanked and welcomed the administration for this timely step.
