Join hands on global handwashing day

Since 1998 Global Handwashing Day is annually celebrated on 15 October to increase awareness and understanding about the importance of handwashing.

Germs that can cause diseases lodge in dirt, grease and the natural oils on hands.

Water alone does not dislodge them, but soap helps break down germ-carrying oils. According to globalhandwashing.org, diarrhea and pneumonia are leading causes of death in children under 5 years old. Handwashing with soap is among the most effective and inexpensive ways to prevent these diseases. This can save lives, cutting diarrhea by almost one half and acute respiratory infections by nearly one quarter.

Also, handwashing with ordinary soap is affordable. You do not have to buy expensive hand sanitiser and anti-bacterial soap. – globalhandwashing.org
