This is Soraya Camid’s constant advice to her fellow evacuees.
Soraya and her family were one of the many people who were displaced because of the the #MarawiSiege back in 2017. After being trained by Action Against Hunger on basic hygiene promotion, she now volunteers as a Community Hygiene Promoter (CHP) in Sugod, Madalum, Lanao del Sur.

Last October 15, Soraya, together with her fellow CHPs and our Iligan team, celebrated #GlobalHandwashingDay by raising awareness on the importance of handwashing in preventing disease transmission, and saving lives. They conducted a hygiene promotion session in Madalum, wherein Soraya shares her gained knowledge on WASH to her community.
Despite the struggles she experienced, Soraya moves forward and works hard to influence her community positively, making her one of our real life heroes.
