Hi everyone,

They say "Prevention is better than cure" and we at FAECARE firmly agree.

So what are we preventing this time? Falling ill. Not because of the recent EBOLA scare but primarily because good habits formed early are great assets to healthy living.

Hand washing has long been a recommended lifestyle, so this month at FAECARE's Kids club, we decided to learn and practice our new habit "Hand Washing", we made our kids "Clean Team Ambassadors" and you too can become one.

 

Here are the simple steps:

WHY DO WE WASH OUR HANDS?

Washing our hands is the best way to stop germs from spreading.

It's easy for a germ on your hand to end up in your mouth.

You can wash your hands so those germs don't get a chance to make you or someone else sick

 

WHEN DO WE WASH OUR HANDS?

  • When Hands are dirty

  • Before and After All  Meals preparing or eating)

  • After Using the Toilet (Number 1 and Number 2)

  • After blowing your nose or coughing

  • After touching pets or other animals

  • After playing outside/working

  • Before and After visiting a sick relative or friend
