April 26, 2022
Good Neighbors continues to spread kindness, striving to keep our communities safe all around the world.
Since July last year, we have been distributing hand sanitizers for free in Canada, Haiti, and Vietnam, thanks to an amazing donation of over 1 million bottles from Greenich Natural Health Inc.
Prevention activities in Haiti
Good Neighbors Haiti had received 611,520 bottles, 500,000 of which were donated to the Ministry of Public Health and Population (MSPP).
The other 111,520 bottles were distributed in Orangers and Ganthier areas by the local Good Neighbors team. The goal was to give out bottles at dispensaries, health centres, and schools.
In Orangers, we were able to distribute 28,680 units at three dispensaries and at all 16 sponsored schools - to parents and teachers who are in direct contact with sponsored children. Students are able to sanitize their hands when they arrive and after recess.
The same activity is happening in Ganthier, where we aim to distribute 12,984 units in the Lamardelle area and 8,364 in Cottin. Good Neighbors Haiti reported that in the Lamardelle area, 8,856 units were already handed out.
