Total Attendance
Irene went to kagulu to continue with food and water contamination, the major food and water diseases,signs and symptoms and ways food can be contaminated. Irene reached kagulu to have her lesson but she was told some members he’d moved to the next village to attend a funeral because the child to one community members had fallen in the swamp while fishing. So Irene decided to move around the village checking to the members who come to attend the lessons and to great a few mothers who had given birth. As she was moving along with the VHT Irene met with a child whose father had rejected because she had a head that was deformed, the mother decided to take her to her grand mother who has taken care of her from childhood to date and she has grown up to be a beautiful girl. Irene then moved to another home where she met with several mothers she talked to then encouraging them to take good care of their children, balancing the food to avoid malnutrition. After visiting several home Irene asked the VHT to mobilize the members for the next lesson.
