Global Handwashing Day 2017

With more than 200 million people taking part in over 100 countries, Global Handwashing Day puts a worldwide focus on the importance of hand washing.  It is celebrated annually on October 15th and is dedicated to increasing awareness and understanding - it promotes hand washing with soap as an easy, effective and affordable way to stop the spread of germs and infections. 

Deb is once again supporting this initiative. This year our campaign is focusing on Primary Schools and encouraging students to become Hand Washing Champions. It is an opportunity to engage with students creatively and help them to understand why, when and how to wash their hands with soap and water.
