Picaflor House aims to provide children with free health and hygiene assistance that would otherwise be unavailable to them.
All children are provided with their own toothbrush and time is alloted for all children to brush their teeth daily. Picaflor House also educates children on dental health and basic personal hygiene.
In addition, cleaner burning stoves were installed during the month of September 2013 in family homes where families were using wood stoves lacking chimneys, causing serious health problems.
As part of our ongoing health and hygiene education the students are constantly encouraged to wash their hands with soap after using the toilet.
