Kuch Badlain Foundation organizing RED TALKS on girls’ health issues

KARACHI: Kuch Badlain Foundation is going to organize a seminar titled as RED TALKS to raise awareness related to girls hidden health issues.

The seminar will be held on Tuesday, January  8, 2019, at Lincoln Corner Liaquat Memorial Library, Karachi.

Kuch Badlain Foundation has identified a major problem in our society that “79 per cent of Pakistani women don’t manage periods hygienically”. Why? One of the main reasons behind the issue is that menstruation is considered in many societies including Pakistan a taboo topic which cannot be discussed or mentioned. In fact, in some families, this is not even openly discussed between mother and daughter. In many cultures, menstruation is being perceived as unclean and embarrassing and also believed that it must remain hidden in communication.

At RED TALKS, the foundation aims to address the issue to help women manage their menstruation cycle more hygienically and productively.

Guest speaker sessions will mainly cover awareness about girls hidden health issues, how to overcome depression and stress in girls during their days, Islamic point of view and Dos & Don’ts.
