In November we had three incredible volunteers head to Cambodia to deliver Health & Sanitation program to our schools. In partnership with ASHA and EcoSoap, Dr Stacey Davie, Dr Andrew Lewandowski & Rosie Bourke presented on a range of topics to students and teachers, including; Hygiene (hand washing & dental health), Sexual health (Birth control, STI’s, Puberty & Periods). Donations of bars of soaps, liquid soaps (for classrooms), toothbrushes and toothpaste were also distributed throughout the school and very well received. Over 40 ‘Days for Girls’ kits were also distributed, which include reusable pads with a washer, soap and a carry bag.
“The girls were shy to begin with but soon were lining up to learn how to use them and really were so grateful as they soon realised how much money could be saved each month and the convenience of the kits”
This was an wonderful initiative and was really well received buy the elders, students and staff in the communities. Click here to read full comprehensive report – Health & Sanitation Report
