Hygiene Kits for Anganwadi Mothers and Children

posted on 18th March 2020, HEALTH

To stay healthy, one has to practice good hygiene habits. In fact, good personal hygiene is important for both health and social reasons. It entails keeping your hands, head, and body clean so as to stop the spread of germs and illness. Your personal hygiene benefits your own health and impacts the lives of those around you.

But most people from poorer backgrounds might not be able to afford full hygiene essentials. This is where we tried to make a difference. We had corporate volunteers make Health and Hygiene Kits for mothers of children at Anganwadis. Such activities encourage the volunteers to realize the need for a healthy and clean environment.

So, what’s in a hygiene kit?

Brush, toothpaste, oil, soap, hand wash, nail cutter, shampoo, sanitary napkins and five biodegradable bags for disposing of those napkins!

These paper bags with strings are made by the volunteers themselves. Once they make them, the hygiene kit essentials are dropped into them.

These health & hygiene kits will be distributed to Anganwadi children and their mothers. In reducing the risk of infections and preventing the transmission of germs, we help them to stay healthy and avoid illness. It also ensures proper skin cleansing while handwashing will make sure that bacteria doesn’t transfer from hands to food and then to one’s body.

Here, we have to remember that when families from poorer backgrounds contract any illness or infection, they run up enormous hospital bills compared to their earning capacity, which includes doctor appointments and medicines. To avoid these events that can severely damage a family in financial terms, the focus should be on how to avoid circumstances that can lead to them.
