Healthy Habits in Rainy Season

Dhoker Jhara Village, India

 

In this season, we discussed the importance of good health in the village of Dhoker Jhara. Due to the rain, the village roads were very badly affected. The small children play in muddy puddles causing various sicknesses, such as colds, coughing, measles, ear pain, etc. Parents don’t understand that precaution is better than cure when their children fall sick.

 

One day, Talakuri’s daughter was suffering with ear pain and my family went to help them. We suggested a homemade remedy and the child was cured within half an hour. The homemade remedy was nothing but a few drops of roasted onion juice.

 

In the last three months, we have been training the villagers about drinking water. We taught them to drink filtered water and keep it in a clean mud pot.

 

This season, the harvest was good and plentiful because of the use of good quality seeds.
