Jared Discovers: This Cool Germ Video

This video talks of the time back when cholera became an epidemic and many people got inflicted + died because of the disease. A child shared the many effective ways on how the people in his village can fight off cholera for good.

It was actually mum who stumbled upon this interesting video on Facebook {am not allowed to use it yet} and bookmarked it so she can show it to me. She thought I would like the illustration + I did! I also find this very educational +, like the people featured on the video, life-changing.

We may not be threatened by cholera today, but there are still many diseases that can be prevented by washing our hands before we eat and keeping proper hygiene.

Check out the video for yourself + I hope you learn something from it. Have a good one!

Disclaimer: Mum wrote this post {of course} but I came up with that title. Isn’t it cool? 😉
