Santex Products steps in to tackle period poverty in Sindh Prisons

Santex Products Private Limited has signed an MoU with Sindh Prisons and Correctional Services (Government of Sindh) and Committee for the Welfare of Prisoners- Legal Aid Society (CWP-LAO), to provide quality menstrual products to female prisoners in Karachi, Hyderabad, Sukkur and Larkana. In addition to donating monthly menstrual hygiene products to female prisoners, the company has also been conducting awareness sessions to educate these women on the importance of practicing safe feminine hygiene.

This joint venture will not only help in making these products available to women, but can also have a long-lasting impact in combating female prisoners’ low morale, self confidence and will hopefully help reduce anxiety amongst them.
