R-Evolution for the Children and Vulnerable with its team of young Ugandan women and men visited the Muslim Children Orphanage Home in Nansana (Kampala, Uganda). From years this orphanage is lovingly caring for abandoned children, promoting their reunification with their parents and their families, and in the meantime providing for their growth, education and instruction.
The “Soap bubbles against Coronavirus” initiative was once again warmly welcomed, thus giving the opportunity to share with children how to wash their hands in a practical and effective way, in order to reduce the spread of the many infectious diseases preventable with proper hygiene, including, but not limited to, the coronavirus.
In fact, an estimated 1.8 million children under the age of 5 die each year from diarrheal diseases and pneumonia, the two leading killers of young children worldwide. Washing hands with soap can protect about 1 in 3 children who get diarrhea and nearly 1 in 5 children with respiratory infections such as pneumonia.
The team has distributed everything you need to wash and sanitize your hands properly, including what may seem the most obvious but often the least available http://bit.ly/2Xe2wGR.
