Raising awareness of the Global Handwashing day 2012
What a great initiative Global Hand Washing Day is. It’s not until something is brought to your attention that it really brings the message home. I am a habitual handwasher, handwashing was drummed in to me from an early age now I know why!

The team at the Global Handwashing Day produced the short video below which brings home the need to wash your hands frequently to avoid passing on bacteria and desieses which you may have collected from a third party or surface you touch.
I’ll look at the shared bowl of peanuts or crisps on the bar in a different light in future!
Some nasty hand-borne disease facts:
- 23% of Commuters have faecal bacterial on their hands
- Government statistics indicate that 25% of foodborne illness is due to improper handwashing
Washing your hands with soap is one of the most practical and effective ways to prevent diarrhoeal diseases. Washing our hands is something we do habitually but it’s not always easy when we are out and about.
