Update for Women’s Welfare Program July 2016

In the month of July we held two Women’s Health Awareness programs at both Sainji Village and Jordi Village. The women and girls of the villages were invited to participate in a fun learning experience where they were informed of such things as how to properly sanitize their cooking utensils to protect from the spread of bacteria and prevent diseases, as well as effective ways using simple items such as a comb, toothbrush, tooth paste, shampoo, hair oils (conditioners), and soap that can be used to maintain a healthy hygienic body. Women from all ages as well as children came and participated in the event. All the women and girls were laughing together as we mentioned simple topics, made jokes, or mentioned a few topics that may be embarrassing for some such as menstruation, menopause, and pregnancy. We had much fun as we talked with one another on the importance of taking care of our bodies and how our actions affect not only our life, but also the children, family, and people around us. Although these topics that were discussed may seem very simple, they are some of the most vital lessons in life that must be taught to ensure optimum health not only for the women but also for their friends and families as well.
