The Women Development Cell of PCER Chembur organised a donation Drive on the occasion of International Women’s Day. The objective of the Donation drive was to distribute sanitary napkins to girls and women from underprivileged community. PCER Chembur collected donations from staff and students in the form of cash of minimum Rs.50/- or a pack of sanitary napkins. The proceeds were then distributed to the women catered to by Stree Mukti Sanghatana in Chembur. Stree Mukti Sanghatana (SMS) works to empower women by creating awareness about equality, gender justice, development and peace. The Principal and faculty of PCER visited the family counselling centre of the organisation located in Chembur. A small interactive session was conducted during which the staff of Stree Mukti Sanghatana shared their experiences and objectives of their area of work in the organization and the needs of the women that they focused on. Following this the sanitary napkins were distributed among the women present there. It was a small step on the part of PCER to highlight gender related issues and challenges and to spread awareness on the importance of menstrual health of women.
