Practicing Hygiene

02 Mar

With limited water in most of our students homes, maintaining hygiene can be difficult. One of the biggest recurring problems is head-lice, which are especially difficult to get rid of in families here as they often share very limited sleeping spaces, meaning the lice can easily spread. We try to do regular checks and medicated shampoos to help control them. Head-lice are so common in Cambodia they are not considered something to be shy about, so everyone gets involved in the hunt for them. We also teach about the importance of hand washing, teeth brushing, and personal hygiene during these sessions, and make sure the students have access to washing facilities whenever needed.
