COVID-19 Response: Hand-washing at Public Market

COVID-19 Response: Hand-washing at Public Market

Completed




Check Rotary’s six Areas of Focus


Detailed description

Working with the Municipality of Ciudad Sandino (ALCISA), one of the poorest urban areas in Nicaragua, our Club donated and installed 24 simple hand-washing stations at the local public market. ALCISA committed to recruiting and training 24 vendors both inside and on the street edges of the public market to clean and maintain the stations with bleach water and soap throughout the day and to store them safely at night. These stations provide essential hygiene services in a highly-trafficked area, helping stop the spread of COVID-19. Because the majority of Nicaraguans live day-to-day, keeping the market open is extremely important both for vendors who must sell to feed their families and consumers who must purchase as economically as possible for their families. The hand-washing stations have been enthusiastically accepted by vendors and shoppers alike.
