He further encouraged the members to keep up with the hygiene and proper sanitation especially in this rain season so as to avoid the diseases that come with the rain. He then welcomed Irene to say a word to the members. Irene thanked the members for turning up for the meeting, encouraged them to plant enough food since it’s the rain season, proper ventilation of their houses to prevent the rain and proper sanitation. Irene then made a review of the previous lesson asking the members some of the things discussed during the previous lesson and she introduced the new lesson. Irene asked the members the importance of discussing maternal,child and infant health, it helps us know about the behavior of women and what affects them said Charles,it also helps us know when to take our children to hospital.
