In this regard, AHM Hasinul Quddus Rusho, Chief Corporates Affairs Officers, Daraz Bangladesh, said, “Most women and girls are hesitant to talk about menstruation hygiene in public due to a persistent stigma surrounding menstruation. It is high time that we start normalizing talking about menstrual hygiene.
Daraz Bangladesh has always made consistent efforts toward curating innovative initiatives in support of the people of this nation. This time, Daraz has taken yet another initiative through the donation of reusable napkins, and this initiative will be continued in the future.
We hope that now a lot of women will have access to proper menstrual hygiene and the stigma surrounding the subject will gradually decrease.”
