Health & Hygiene

Even after decades of freedom, Kenya is struggling to provide basic health services to its people. According to government sources, in Kenya 10 children die every hour due to respiratory infections.1 child dies every 10 minutes due to diarrhoea. And annually, about 200,000 children under 5 years of age die due to preventable diseases.

The situation calls for timely care and diagnosis which can reduce the incidence of morbidity and mortality especially among children and women. The video below is VICTORIA MUSENYA illustration proper hand washing practice.

Washing Hands Programme is one such special initiative of Hello Pretty to provide healthcare services to meet the immediate health care needs of the marginalized community in remote rural areas and slums through standalone camps. Customized health camps are organized extensively across the country offering comprehensive health services – curative, preventive, promotive and referral, to a large number of people in selected intervention areas.

Hygiene is a fancy term that really only refers to the steps you take to keep clean and healthy. You are a very important person and you are responsible for keeping yourself special and healthy. Hygiene is what keeps and promotes the health of people and the community. There are clean living habits everyone should try to follow. Let’s learn the importance of cleanliness.
