“Period poverty” is defined as a condition in which women experience difficulty accessing safe and hygienic menstrual products and accessing knowledge about menstruation. 1 out of 3 women in Indonesia is in period poverty.
Nona Woman has contributed to providing easy access to pads. March 8 is celebrated as Women's Day and March is designated as a special month for women. Therefore, Nona Woman collaborated with “Berdarah Tanpa Mati” to make donations to support women undergoing menstruation.
One of Nona's visions is to help alleviate this problem by providing free sanitary pads through the “Berdarah Tanpa Mati” movement.
Why did Nona choose “Berdarah Tanpa Mati”? “Berdarah Tanpa Mati” is a movement around the issue of menstruation in Indonesia which has received support from the Yayasan Tunas Cendekia.
The first stage of the “Berdarah Tanpa Mati” movement is providing free sanitary pads boxes in public areas. To date, Nona has donated 1,200 pads and will continue to donate to help all women and girls throughout Indonesia to have easy access to pads and fight the stigma around menstruation.
Every woman has the human right to obtain health and well-being during menstruation. Therefore, let's share this article with other friends for a more advanced Indonesia!
