Choreographer Sandip Soparrkar joins hands with Letsallhelp.org and adopts 2000 girls for their hygiene requirements for a year
For over a decade now Bollywood ace choreographer Sandip Soparrkar has been winning various awards for his contribution in the field of dance and social work. His initiative ‘Dance for a Cause’ has been using dance as a medium to raise awareness and for the betterment of the society and its varied issues. In fact, his dance for cause went on International Level and this year is very special for him, as he went one step ahead and adopted 2000 underprivileged girls with the support of LetsAllHelp to fulfill their requirement for sanitary pads for one year. Sandip, has joined Letsallhelp.org as their Change Maker in their quest to achieve their goal - “No one sleeps hungry or be void of basic personal hygiene.”
The hygiene needs of these 2000 girls will be provided by one of the leading manufacturers of sanitary pads in India – M/s. Wonderize.
While talking to the media Sandip Soparrkar said, “Menstruation is considered a taboo to even speak about in India, so imagine the reaction to the idea of a man adopting women to propagate genital hygiene. It surely is shocking for many, but I believe we dancers are the doors to our society. We show what is needed and how it can be done. We are all aware that poor genital hygiene has been found to be an important factor for the development of dysplasia and cervical cancer, and the use of pads made from reused cloth increases that risk. I am thrilled that through letsallhelp.org we will now be able to inculcate the importance of genital hygiene to these women and through them help many more.”
Letsallhelp.org is a Mumbai based social impact startup, which provides a transparent online platform that connects donors to the underprivileged launched their operations one month ago. This platform with zero fees aims to take care of basic food and hygiene needs of kids, women, men and elderly at orphanages, old age homes, shelters and various unaided schools in India.
Premal Shah, Change Maker and Founder of Letsllhelp.org said, “I am thrilled and grateful to Sandip Soparrkar for his belief in our organization and we are sure that with his support, we will take this initiative to greater heights.” He further added, “We wanted to create a platform where donors have 100% trust, transparency and know the impact they are making through their contributions. Letsallhelp.org gives donors an opportunity to contribute towards helping the underprivileged and underserved and feel good about the impact they are making.”
