Clean Hands - Save Lives - Here's how to actually do it!

Joy Kauffman, MPH

COVID-19 is sweeping the world. I know it won't solve this pandemic but, did you know that washing hands is “the most cost-effective intervention for the worldwide control of disease”?

FARM STEW has been teaching hand washing, how to cough properly, and basic sanitation in our hands-on courses in Africa to over 81,000 participants in the last 4 1/2 years. With support from people like you, that number is growing every day!

Now it's time for FARM STEW to be a blessing to YOU and YOUR family!

Due to the current COVID-19 virus, I invite you to take a few minutes to watch me teaching the E-Learning FARM STEW Sanitation lesson, "Clean Hands, Clean Body, Clean Home"! It's a compilation of many sources, including my Masters degree in International Public Health from Johns Hopkins University (97').

I give thorough and explicit instructions on how to wash hands, cough properly into your elbow, and clean your home to prevent disease. (Some of it is focused on African homes but much of it is relevant to YOU as well.)

This video is in the FARM STEW Basic Course ( and yesterday I posted it on YouTube below to share more broadly!

In summary, there are certain times when it is especially important to wash your hands. THAT TIME IS NOW!!
When anyone is sick in your home or in the community, it is super important to wash even more often.

Without the generosity of your gifts from people like you, we could have never developed these e-courses and share them for free. Your gift today can save lives!

Please consider sharing this post- as this message is so important for everyone and its a GREAT way to learn and tell others about the message of FARM STEW.

A big (virtual) hug to all of you and may you have peace that passes all understanding that comes from Christ alone!
