The social and individual impact of the pandemic has been devastating especially to the girls and women of less-privileged communities and recent severe weather conditions have worsened things, complicating an already impoverished. This prevailing situation has only served to deny women access to essential menstrual hygiene products such as sanitary napkins.
As Sri Lanka’s leading brand of sanitary napkins, Eva has once again stepped forward to assist and uplift these women by ensuring their most essential needs are met. The brand recently partnered with the Red Cross to donate fifty thousand sanitary napkins to women in need in the affected areas of Colombo, Kaluthara, Ratnapura, and Kegalle districts. The official donation took place at the Sri Lanka Red Cross Society Headquarters in Dharmapala Mawatha, Colombo 07 where the representatives of ICL Brands Pvt Ltd handed over the goods to SLRCS representatives at the venue.
SLRCS will utilize its extensive network and on-ground know-how to ensure the sanitary napkins are given to those most in need, as the organization works closely with the government in fulfilling these duties. SLRCS’s district branches will work closely with the Divisional Secretariats and Grama Niladharis of the relevant districts, making sure that the goods reach recipients in a timely manner.
