Global Handwashing Day is an annual global advocacy day dedicated to increasing awareness and understanding about the importance of handwashing with soap as an easy, effective, and affordable way to prevent diseases and save lives.
Global Handwashing Day is designed to:
- Foster and support a global and local culture of handwashing with soap
- Shine a spotlight on the state of handwashing around the world
- Raise awareness about the benefits of handwashing with soap
On October 15th, NPH homes participated in the Global Handwashing Day worldwide event. Our healthcare staff educated the children, staff and volunteers about how to wash their hands properly, thus eliminating the spread of germs.
Thank you to all the NPH homes for their support for this important activity.
