Hygiene and being resourceful!

Hygiene and being resourcefulWhen you talk about threats in a post disaster scenario it’s easy to get wrapped up in the obvious. I wouldn’t begrudge anyone for having fear of roving mobs of the desperate, life threatening conditions of the environment around us or even the very real possibility of starvation. These are threats that people in perilous situations face all over the world. We don’t see them very often close to home but when disaster strikes the threats to our well being come screaming back into reality. Continue reading Hygiene and being resourceful!
