Harikar and PWJ under the project of Hygiene Promotion Program in Duhok were still moving forward on their activities. After passing some weeks from our activities in Domiz and Akre Camps, all the volunteers had a good understanding of their duties. The volunteers visited houses from sector 1 to 30, distributed and explained the handouts for the families they visited. They have covered most of the families from those sectors, majority of the families had a good way of treatment with HP volunteers and they welcomed them. The process was achieving success in both Camps due to the work undertaken by HP volunteers. The families were being promoted and familiar with many different health and self-related topics which would be very helpful for individuals and the refugees around.

Akre team had visited 88 families, discussed and explained the related subjects and topics on hygiene aspects. Also, ways for prevention, how to treat with diseases while being infected and by this way the process has got the families satisfaction. Also, Harikar/HP team held a meeting with HP volunteers and Akre camp leader. Discussions about problems were raised by families which were mostly related to the low quantity of water. As a result, HP team counted the quantity of water that was sent to Akre camp per person with the camp leader. According to the international scale, it was a big quantity of water. HP team agreed that the problem is in the consumption of water, and in this case, refugees should treat water in better ways.
