Four Hygiene Kits $20.00
Some children have never been exposed to personal hygiene items before. These kits include combs, soap, toothbrushes, towels and nail clippers. These simple items can prevent many diseases caused by poor personal hygiene.
Why This Matters
Combined with training and frequent reminders, these hygiene kits are a first step to helping children prevent skin and scalp diseases, infections and serious illnesses passed via eating and touching people with dirty hands. Often FH trains both children and parents in hygiene so they can encourage each other to adopt healthier practices. Many of the people FH works with can afford these items -- it's just a matter of making it a priority in the budget. By seeing the results of better hygiene, adults and children alike can understand the benefits to staying clean.
