On the occasion of International Women’s Day, Mumbai-based abstract artist, Krupa Shah, has stepped up once again to make a donation to women from unprivileged backgrounds residing in and around Wada, Maharashtra.
In a bid to contribute towards the wellbeing of women with lack of access to necessities such as sanitary napkins and clothes, Shah made a donation to 50 recipients. With due consideration of COVID safety protocols, the intimate event was held at Adishakti Mukti Gyan Prasarak Mandal, Wada, on the 7th March, 2021, from 11:30 AM onwards.
With an aim to spread awareness on the importance of literacy and financial management, Krupa Shah delivered a speech on women empowerment, whilst also addressing the concerns and challenges faced by the locals.
Krupa Shah, said, “It’s a blessing to be in the position of privilege, which I believe, shouldn’t be kept limited to myself. There wouldn’t have been a better occasion than International Women’s Day to contribute and share a part of my happiness with those who deserve the same. Sarees and sanitary napkins are just the sources to spread happiness, the real motive is to not let these women be deprived of the essentials. Additionally, due to lack of exposure of knowledge and mediums of entertainment, rural women are unaware of their roles and rights in society. But here’s where I’d like to take the lead to help them get educated, aware, and socially responsible, whilst also making sure their setbacks are addressed and resolved instantly.”
Shah’s initiative for the women of Wada is not an occasion taking place for the first time. The world-renowned artist has been conducting social events targeting women and children in particular for many years now.
