On Sunday, actor Parvathy Thiruvoth joined Hibi Eden, MP, in launching a free menstrual cup distribution scheme.
She expressed her pride in serving as the brand ambassador for the project, which intended to promote cleanliness throughout the menstrual cycle. Most of the issues that women have during menstruation will be alleviated with the use of the cup. Men need to be better listeners and more aware of the physical and mental issues that women face during their periods.
The project is being implemented in coordination with the Indian Medical Association (IMA) and Green Kochi Mission. The cups will be distributed to one lakh women through 100 centres, Mr. Eden said.
Those in attendance included former diplomat Venu Rajamony, IMA-Kochi president Dr. Maria Varghese, and entrepreneur Sheela Kochouseph.
