Some things we can't do alone:
Hassa's story

For subsistence farmers, a wet climate is a blessing as well as curse. Rain means healthy harvests but it can also mean unhealthy skin, as damp conditions prevent skin healing. Minor complaints can quickly worsen, stopping work and threatening the family's livelihood.

When you work outdoors in poor conditions, everyday skin complaints can become serious. The Vaseline® Healing Project provided medical outreach and health education for farming communities focused on better skincare.
