Here at Haven, we are committed to promoting strong hygiene standards and practices across Haiti so that its people live with great health and well-being.
Our Community Health Workers (CHWs) visit people in their homes and give regular workshops on hygiene standards, explaining key procedures and delivering messages on the importance of hand-washing, wearing shoes when using latrines, and more.
We distribute hygiene kits, containing basic cleaning materials, and train Community Mobilisers to motivate communities to maintain these new resources.
We also work to form local Water, Sanitation and Health (WASH) committees, supporting them to identify and act on ongoing issues in their own communities.
These activities all help to prevent the spread of disease and sickness in Haiti’s communities so that their families can live with health and make the most of every day.
