Healthy Housing Habits – Water, the source of life

As we battle the Coronavirus Pandemic together, we must remember to use clean water to wash and sanitize our hands and homes.

Water is the source of life, but when polluted or dirty, it carries microbes and parasites and substances that can cause disease and make us sick. It is our responsibility to keep our water safe and healthy.

When we live in healthy homes, we must have a nearby water supply of a good enough quality and enough for everyone. We can all take action in small ways – by covering open water storage tanks, or by ensuring that the water eliminated from our toilets and showers and kitchen sinks is removed from our homes in safe and healthy ways.

We can also help our community to have safe water by asking local authorities to work with families on safe water practices. Habitat for Humanity can help! Check out our Facebook Page @HabitatTNT and call 675-1222 to learn more!

Habitat Trinidad and Tobago offers disaster mitigation presentations on healthy housing habits. We are teaching you how to make your home, water, environment safe, and how to support and accommodate your community when preparing for emergencies, and this information can be critical to your health ahead of the 2020 hurricane season. If your community or organization would like to host a special discussion with parents and teachers, please call 675-1222 or 398-7381 to learn more. You can also visit our Facebook Page @HabitatTNT to contact us to schedule a meeting, and listen out for tips and information daily on Boom Champions 94.1FM in March 2020.
