Only a few months ago various cities in Bangladesh saw an unusual outbreak of diarrhea. Our sponsored children live in an environment that makes them more vulnerable to diarrhea and dehydration resulting from that. ORS (Oral Rehydration Salt)/ oral saline helps to recover from these quickly.
However, they don’t always have access to the ORS available at the market. It is important for them to know how they can make ORS at home so that they don't have to depend on the saline from the stores. We held a program for our sponsored children, where they learned how to make ORS at home with the ingredients they usually have at home. They attended our program with great enthusiasm and at the end of the program, they made ORS themselves.
