Community Video (Guinea): Lavage des Mains à Tindo

Yate is a mother in Tindo, Guinea whose young child was up the night before, sick from diarrhea. The next morning, she meets her neighbor Famata, who is shocked because the easy process of handwashing can help completely stop children from getting diarrhea. Famata tells Yate about the critical moments for handwashing and then asks her husband to show Yate their tippy-tap and to demonstrate how to properly wash her hands. Yate asks about washing children’s hands and Famata shows her.
