Hygiene and Sanitation

The hygiene and sanitation program is heavily focused on the orphanage, as it is a dense area populated by immuno-compromised children and thus a breeding ground for disease. We perform monthly home inspections looking for any health hazards and safety concerns such as bug infestations and overcrowding. During these home visits, we use the opportunity to screen for any illnesses by talking with every child and adult to find out if they feel sick or have any itching, toothaches, fevers etc. This is also the time when we distribute toothbrushes, toothpaste, floss and fluoride to all of the homes. There are also daily bathroom inspections, kitchen inspections and weekly food depot inspections to secure that all of these areas are clean and safe for the children and staff of the Espwa orphanage.
