Promoting Health and Hygiene in Honduras

Children at a school in Aldea Nueva, Copán in Honduras are benefiting from health and hygiene training thanks to Operation Blessing. The elementary and kindergarten students learned the correct way to clean one’s body in a shower, how many times a day teeth should be brushed, and how to properly wash their hands. They each received a fluoride treatment and a take-home kit with a toothbrush, toothpaste, and a bottle of soap. Teaching these children proper hygiene at a young age reduces their likelihood of falling ill due to bad habits and practices.
