During our activities, we attended Health Cluster Meetings that were held by WHO cluster coordination. During the meetings, one of the most important topics was hygiene promotion. We obtained the information from WHO and the Ministry of Health, that the people in Vanuatu were in need of education materials. Accordingly, we decided to donate one thousand copies of IEC package to WHO and it will be distributed to communities under the supervision of WHO. Hopefully, this donation will make some contributions to prevent diseases by unhygienic practice for the affected people in Vanuatu.
This health package was created by a HuMA doctor with cooperation of the Ministry of Health when he was previously deployed in Vanuatu through JICA. It was edited by an in-service JICA volunteer. It is like an attractively illustrated book to enable people to learn the importance of having good health habits.
And donating is not the end of our project. We will offer orientation training of the health text to community organizers in cooperation of other NGOs and hope to upgrade people's knowledge about public health.
We have set our fundraising goal to $4,500 or higher for printing that costs approximately $5 per text. Please donate now to help people keep their health.
