Tom made a visit to the village of kalalu to check on sanitation and hygiene improvements with emphasis on the construction of hand washing stands.
When he arrived in the village, he was welcomed by some of the committee members who were present as most of them had gone for a burial at neighboring village.
They moved in the lower section encouraging residents on the construction of hand washing stands so that they can improve on their hand washing in the village.
They were guiding the residents on how to construct the stands as well as sharing with the village residents the values of maintaining hand washing especially during this time of covid 19.
As they moved around, they saw new hand washing stands some already cemented while some had not yet been cemented. Tom and the committee members encouraged the residents to cement their hand washing stands as its the only way they can make them last longer and serve the purpose.
They saw 16 new construction hand washing stands with 6 cemented on the lower section. Tom also saw some new pits for latrines being dug. Tom and the committee members encouraged the residents on better construction methods and the use of better materials.
On the side of dish racks, Tom and the committee members also end residents to construct the new model that was demonstrated which uses fewer nails and is constructed on the ground instead of digging the poles into the ground.
This was after Tom and the committee members saw some dish racks that were below standard.
