Thanks to Shuvasangha we have been able to deliver sanitary napkins to more than half a hundred girls. They are quite surprised. An organization does not usually take such steps. The prices of essential health related items are also skyrocketing. When it’s being handed to them for free, it’s natural to be surprised. ‘
