MWF Supports Nutrition Month Through Proper Handwashing

In line with this year’s Nutrition Month's theme of “Healthy Diet, Gawing Habit for Life”, Manila Water Foundation reached out to public schools and institutions through its Health in Our Hands (HiOH) program, a year-round campaign that teaches the value of proper handwashing in preventing the spread of communicable diseases.

The Nutrition Month series of HiOH taught around 700 schoolchildren about the seven steps of proper handwashing. Aside from the pupils, teachers and community stakeholders also joined in the interactive learning sessions conducted during the school visits.
