The importance of hygiene and how you can help

21 August 2019 | Shannen Harte

Hygiene is one of the most important factors when running an organization of this nature, particularly with regard to our Primary Health Care Clinic, Kitchen and Preschool & Creche. With a large number of people coming in and out of the centre daily, we are susceptible to all kinds of germs, so cleanliness is the number one priority when it comes to our people.

We deal with HIV/AIDS and TB Patients as well as many other sickly people from the community.

Today we ask for your help in donating cleaning supplies, with this donation we will not only save on our budget for cleaning materials but it also provides us with peace of mind to know that we have access to these cleaning materials on an ongoing basis. Cleaning begins from the morning and ends at the end of the day, we scrub down all the classroom floors, the kitchen, the clinic as well as the outside areas of the centre.

Cleaning has become an important factor for providing jobs as we've assigned an entire cleaning team to attend to the daily cleanliness and hygiene of the community centre. For example, we have 2 cleaners in every classroom.

We are proud that we can also educate the people of the importance of hygiene as they witness the cleanliness that is all around them. This reciprocates onto other community members, inspiring them to also keep their own homes and selves clean.
