‘Padman’ in action: Akshay Kumar starts a sanitary pads donation drive

The Coronavirus outbreak has made everyone dedicate their undivided attention to curing people affected by Covid-19. While everyone is busy providing basic essential goods, menstrual hygiene often tends to get ignored. The underprivileged especially find it difficult to maintain menstrual hygiene. R Balki and Akshay Kumar have taken it upon themselves to create awareness about this issue.


On Menstrual Hygiene Day (May 28), Akshay announced his support for a campaign to provide sanitary pads and kits to the female daily wage workers.


Akshay Kumar took to his Twitter handle to share a very important cause, urging his fans and followers to provide sanitary pads to the underprivileged women. He wrote, “A great cause needs your support. COVID-19 doesn’t stop periods, help provide sanitary pads to underprivileged women across Mumbai. Every donation counts.”


Akshay and R Balki have been part of creating awareness of menstrual hygiene during the release of his much talked about film ‘PadMan’ that was appreciated widely by both critics and the audience.
