Recently several cities in Bangladesh including the capital Dhaka saw an unusual outbreak of diarrhea. More than one thousand people were seeking medical assistance daily in March. Diarrhea can be very dangerous, especially among children. So, it is necessary that our children know about the causes and remedies of diarrhea.
Diarrhea is usually caused by drinking unsafe water and unhygienic foods. Our sponsored children living in slums are more vulnerable than others to be affected by it. So, we arranged a diarrhea awareness program for our sponsored children to make them aware of it. Our caretaker, Fahmida, discussed the causes and remedies of diarrhea and some preventive measures to fight the outbreak. The children actively participated in the program and helped us to spread awareness in their neighborhood as well.
