The Head Lice Treatment Bangladesh Clinic


December 21, 2017

Just last week, the Public Health Department organised a four-day camp at The Sreepur Village for the treatment and prevention of head lice in which a total of 208 beneficiaries were treated.

The Head Lice Treatment Bangladesh Clinic was set up by a UK company following a cry for help from The Sreepur Village which has a real problem at keeping head lice at bay.

Many people think head lice is a western issue but in The Sreepur Village, Bangladesh, it is a real concern as the chemical products being used were not preventing the lice from returning which, in fact, has an even bigger impact on the children’s lives in the way of everyday learning.

One of The Sreepur Village’s main focuses is on education so, armed with their professional devices, the UK Clear Hair Network were keen to offer their help. Coming from a small village called Withnell in Lancarshire, the team from the clinic had never ever been anywhere like Sreepur so when they visited, in October, it was a real eye opener for them.

One of the clinics’ volunteers gave up her own time to travel to The Sreepur Village and told us:

“What struck me first is the number of children there, the noise of over 400 of them and the happy smiles as we arrived, they eat together and live in the village receiving food and protection with their mothers. They attend school and get healthy meals. I have to admit the amount they eat is small and the diet is not so varied but they are grateful for every little bit.”

During the training the staff at The Sreepur Clinic were taught in the exact same way as in the UK, where every technician is given thorough training to make sure they can treat effectively which, in brief, is check, treat and complete, more details can be found at www.clearhair.com

At Sreepur we do not have an art therapist but we do have a resident artist, Milon, who often teaches therapeutic art in his classes as the majority of children that come to live at Sreepur have witnessed or been part of a traumatic experience.

SwimSafe June 2022

June 20, 2022

In 2018, with the aid of CIPRB and one of their trustees, Becky Horsbrugh, the Sreepur Village started to run swimming lessons in their pond in the village grounds.  The lessons, since this date, take place every year during the months of June and July, and are now taught by a number of Sreepur staff who have since been trained to facilitate the programme each year.

Approximately sixty children, aged 6-12, take part each year. They will learn how to swim 25 metres freestyle, tread water or float for 30 seconds as well as perform a rescue from dry
land.  As half the number of deaths from drowning occur in 1-5 year olds, having an older child trained in dry-land rescue is pivotal in striving to keep this devastating number down.
