GLOBAL HANDWASHING DAY

Global Handwashing Day (GHD), the day intends to raise public awareness about the need and importance of washing our hand with soap in order to avoid diseases and to save life.
Although people across the world clean their hands with water, only few use soap to wash their hands. Washing hands with soap is not only a simple and inexpensive method for cleanliness, but also it can dramatically cut down the number of young children who get sick.
Global Handwashing Day mainly aims to
1.     Foster and support a global and local culture of handwashing with soap
2.     Shine a spotlight on the state of handwashing around the world
3.     Raise awareness about the benefits of handwashing with soap
