GOOD PERSONAL HYGIENE

one of the most effective ways to protect ourselves and others from many illnesses. Personal hygiene is best described as the principal of maintaining cleanliness and grooming of the external body. However in many areas of the world practicing personal hygiene is difficult due to lack of resources such as water, soap and toilet tissue/paper.

Ammalife works continuously, with our partners in other countries to find realistic, evidence-based ways to make motherhood safe for women.  Our #onaroll campaign is raising funds for toilet paper and carbolic soap on the Labour Ward at Queen's Hospital in Malawi.  Just 9p buys toilet paper and soap for a new mother during her hospital stay.

Just 9p buys:

  • dignity
  • much reduced infection rates
  • Plumbing and sanitation that lasts much longer because mothers don't have to resort to old rags and stones to keep clean

Ammalife works continuously with our partners in other countries  to find realistic, evidence-based ways to make motherhood safe for all women.

Its the simple and little things that make a huge difference in life.

Ammalife's campaign may not be glamorous but it couldn't be more important.  Please help us guarantee the supply of toilet rolls and soap for new mothers to ensure they retain their dignity at a very vulnerable time in their lives.

Ammalife has worked with Chira Fund and the Lady Fatemah Charitable Trust to completely renovate the decrepit drains and plumbing on the Labour Ward at the Queen Elizabeth Central Hospital (QECH) in Blantyre, Malawi.  New mothers and staff now have working toilets and running water - a simple but essential intervention to cut infection.

TOILET PAPER - so easy to take for granted - means hygiene and dignity and an end to infection which can risk lives ....
