First Health Promotion Day in Nong-Heo Village, Laos

Lao Friends Hospital for Children (LFHC) held its first Health Promotion Day in Neong Ho Village, Laos. LFHC’s Outreach team, led by Outreach Coordinator Kazumi, travels to rural local villages to teach health education to children and families. Topics include everything from: breastfeeding to basic sanitation, including handwashing, and a cooking demonstration to show how to prepare nutritious meals that meet the various nutritional requirements needed for children to grow and develop. Kazumi and the team recorded weight and height of each child present, and provided antenatal care to expecting mothers. The team also provided immunizations for the children.
