From Kerala With Love: How Women From Down South Reached Out To Help Women In Flood Affected Kashmir

Kerala’s biggest women’s self help organization worked for 48 hours non-stop to manufacture and send much needed sanitary napkins to their “sisters” in Kashmir. Watch the touching video.

Jammu and Kashmir battled with its worst flood in 100 years in September 2014, killing over 200 people along with thousands who were left homeless.


People from across the country came forward to extend their support. They delivered food packets, woolens and medicines. But there was one essential woman requirement that was ignored by all – sanitary napkins.




Get Closer, a CSR management company along with Kerala’s biggest women’s self help organization, Kudumbashree catered to this urgent need and transported sanitary napkins urgently to their “sisters” in Kashmir.


Volunteers at Kudumbashree’s 3 units at Kannur, Kochi and Kottayam worked for 2 days and nights to manufacture the sanitary pads. All thanks to these women in far away Kerala, Kashmir’s women got that which was sorely missing at this time of crisis!


Watch this heartwarming video on the efforts of the women from Kerala and how it changed the lives of the women in Kashmir:
