Tales from the Missionary Hut: Lap it Up

Tales from the Missionary Hut: Lap it up

“D is for diarrhoea” and “don’t touch your bottom”. This revolutionary medical assistant only requires an old laptop with a few working keys to teach the poor to stay healthy. Perfect for the developing world, the S.L.A.G demonstrates the ultimate in preventative medicine. Drink herbal tea, go to bed early (in a net, of course) and get a wealthy Westerner on a gap year to teach you hand washing – perfect!

It is always important to tell people what they already know; especially now that you make it more interesting with technology, though i bet a few people in the rural areas of Africa will have access to a laptop.

I believe this is perfect, people need to wash their hands, it is funny that even the educated need to be reminded… it is not a waste of time, i believe strongly the more you sound the drum about washing hands the less diarrhorea people will have especially add wash with soap!

thanks people

may you get more funds to reach more people in all your endeavours
