Brazil: Increasing Hygienic Awareness (July 2015)
The representation of the Order of Saint Lazarus Brazil - CSLI of "Penha do Itapocoroi-SC" held on July 9 an awareness activity on oral hygiene, applied to the early childhood classes of EBM "Joao Antonio Pinto", subject to the Municipal Education in Penha/SC.
During the project, the young students were presented with techniques of oral hygiene and dental hygiene practice. Among the activities developed, the children themselves created denture from play-dough, grains of hominy, beans and corn.
Pupils received customized dental hygiene kits, offered by the Commandery of Sao Paulo of the Grand Priory of Brazil of the Hospitaller Order of Saint Lazarus of Jerusalem, thereby encouraging oral hygiene practices.
It is our view that education is the best way to achieve a better and more just society, and this most relevant action is in complete alignment with our ancestral values. Congratulations to those responsible for this action and special thanks must go to the Commandery of Sao Paulo for the provision of the kits.
