Haiti update: Clean hands, proper hygiene and fun

William Lowry, Clean the World’s director of global distribution, is in Haiti again this week with sponsors and supporters from Florida Hospital. Another soap distribution is in process along with the delivery of much-needed medical and hygiene supplies, and the construction of a playground at an orphanage for children affected by the 2010 earthquake.

Clean the World’s recent visits to Haiti have brought nearly 260,000 bars of soap to villages, schools, orphanages, medical clinics and tent cities there. Children from broken homes, many still nursing injuries and disease from the earthquake and recent cholera outbreak, are eager to receive more soap and supplies to help turn their lives around.

Among the highlights were 12,000 bars of soap donated by school students in the Edina school district in suburban Minneapolis, Minn. Students there collected soaps for Haiti in December, and are in the midst of an even larger soap drive right now.

The pallet of soaps delivered by Clean the World (via Royal Caribbean Cruise Lines) was received by World Wide Village, a non-profit based in St. Paul, Minn. to meet the basic needs of the less fortunate in Haiti. The soaps were distributed in early February to schools, orphanages and health clinics in the following Haitian cities, towns and villages: Arcahaie, Leogane, Port-au-Prince, Kenscoff, and Carrefour.

Clean the World continues to receive generous soap donations from schools and organizations all over the world. If you’d like to take part in your own soap drive, please visit this link [soap donation link] on our website and spread the word in your community about the healing power of soap.

You have selected a wonderful topic. Really this is an healthy information. Now a day, no one drinking water while working because they are that much busy in there work but it is not good for health. Now a day, most of the people are working infront of system. So water is very much important. Try to take hygienic food...
