Mahwari Justice: Menstrual Relief for Pakistan

Mahwari Justice is a student-led grassroots movement in Pakistan working to distribute menstrual hygiene kits to those affected by recent floods

Pakistan has been hit by one of the worst calamities in its history. Recent flooding has killed over 783 people in Pakistan, including 191 children. Many people remain without any access to food, hygiene or shelter.

Women's struggles are amplified in such crises. Periods do not stop with floods. Yet, the right to a safe period is a human right often dismissed due to its gendered nature. In response to the floods, my friends Bushra Mahnoor (@bushramaahnoor on Twitter) and Anum Khalid (@anumkhalidprvez on Twitter) co-founded Mahwari Justice, an organization collecting and organizing the distribution of underwear, sanitary pads and hygiene items to women and girls in flood-affected areas. They are in search of more sustainable menstrual hygiene options to minimize their carbon footprint. Moreover, they are raising funds for UTI and vaginal infection medicines to send alongside their next donation.

Mahwari Justice has raised over Rs. 264,740, with which they have purchased panties, sanitary packs, and cotton pads. 3000 menstrual relief kits have been delivered to women in various flood-affected areas in Balochistan including Lasbela, Uthal, Zehri, and Washok in addition to 500 to the flood victims in Siraiki Waseb in the regions of Rajanour and Dera Ghazi Khan. Each kit contains a pack of sanitary pads and underwear.
