ROTARACT CLUB OF AGEGE DISTRICT 9110 NIGERIA
SANITATION EXERCISE 2020
We shall not defeat any of the infectious diseases that plague the developing world until we have also won the battle for safe drinking water, sanitation, and basic health care.
On this day, Saturday 25th 2020. Rotaract Club of Agege jointly with Agege Leo Club embarked on sanitation exercise in Dopemu area of Agege, tagged: Clean Up Agege.
This project is in line with the 3rd Rotary Area of Focus _(Water and Sanitation)_ and also 3rd Avenue of Service _(Community Service)_.
The program started with members of Rotaract Club of Agege and Agege Leo Club and friends and family of both organizations in attendance at exactly 8:30am.
In reducing the spread of intestinal worms, schistosomiasis and trachoma, which are neglected tropical diseases that cause suffering for millions, we cleaned some specific area of dopemu.
Also, is has proved that poor sanitation is linked to transmission of diseases such as cholera, diarrhoea, dysentery, hepatitis A, typhoid and polio and exacerbates stunting.
Poor sanitation also reduces human well-being, social and economic development due to impacts such as anxiety, risk of sexual assault, and lost educational opportunities, in order to avoid the above said, sanitation is an essential way to healthy living.
Sanitation is important due to some reasons, to mention but few:
• Reducing the severity and impact of malnutrition
• Promoting dignity and boosting safety, particularly among women and girls.
• Reducing human exposure to pathogens.
Other features of the project include:
📌 Distribution of Nose Mask: As confirmed cases of COVID-19 continue to rise, the CDC is recommending that everyone wear a cloth mask when they go out in public, also wearing a nose mask will help prevent the spread of infection and prevent the individual from contracting any airborne infectious germs. When someone coughs, talks, sneezes they could release germs into the air that may infect others nearby. Face masks are part of an infection control strategy to eliminate cross-contamination.
📌 Donation of Waste Bin to Temidire Dopemu Market: Due to the fact that certain types of wastes can be hazardous and can contaminate the environment if not handled properly, it has been advised to properly dispose wastes, in achieving this in our community, the both organizations donated an aluminum waste bin to the market, lastly, waste bin today have an important role in keeping a neighbourgood environmentally friendly, by keeping garbage locked in and collected by authorities, hence preventing environmental hazard and keeping your neighbourhood neat and tidy.
Temidire Dopemu market executives appreciated Rotaract club of Agege and Agege Leo Club with a token of #5,000 for the tremendous work done.
There is an easy way of finding the job to be done today, just look around your environment; take note of the places that need cleaning and the places that need decoration; do one at a time!” “Clean communities, healthy citizens.” “When it comes to profit over safety, profit usually wins.”
THANKS AND GOD BLESS
