Kenyans Join The World In Marking Global Hand Washing Day
“So many kids miss school because of very little infections that can be avoided simply by hand washing.” Purity Maina, a hand washing champion with Hue Experiental has stated.
Speaking to Ghetto Radio News, Ms Maina was on record that hands ought to be washed using running water and soap so as to kill micro pathogens that we pick up from different surfaces.
With the world celebrating the global hand washing day today, many Kenyans seem not to be aware of the day even though most claim to be washing hands regularly.
Despite most them not being aware of the global celebration, Kenyans still recognise the importance of the noble simple hand washing activity.
This day is celebrated allover the globe to create awareness and understanding about the importance of hand washing with soap as an effective and affordable way to prevent diseases and save lives.
This year’s theme “Clean Hands for All” follows the push to leave no one behind in the Sustainable Development Agenda.
Inequalities in hand washing facilities and effective hand washing promotion programs can put individuals at higher risk for diseases that impact their health, education, and economic outcomes.
