Children come to World Vision’s Child-Friendly Spaces for the fun and games. But they carry away much more than coloring sheets to show their parents. They learn five steps of handwashing to prevent waterborne diseases and concepts of “good touch-bad touch” to help prevent abuse.
More than than 50 inches of rain fell on Chennai, a city of 4.8 million people and the capital of southeast India’s Tamil Nadu state, during Nov. 2015. More than 260 people died in Tamil Nadu due to the floods.
Medical authorities warned of possible disease outbreaks from contaminated mud and water, especially in urban areas. Many families’ homes were destroyed. Thousands of people stayed in relief camps that lacked clean water, sanitation, and solid waste management. World Vision distributed food, water, and household supplies to families displaced by the floods.
The organization opened three Child-Friendly Spaces to aid children in their recovery.
