Global Handwashing Day
“The theme for GlobalHandwashingDay this year is clean hands - a recipe for health, we are celebrating this day by spreading awareness among children about washing their hands to prevent diseases and save lives, “ says Aya, our WASH coordinator in Lebanon.
In celebration of GlobalHandWashingDay, our WASH team in the Bekaa valley invited around 100 #Syrian #refugee children to a theatre show to motivate and mobilise them to improve their handwashing habits.
“Parents and children always ask us to invite them to such events because it has more impact than theoretical sessions, they learn how to practice hygiene habits and have fun at the same time,” Aya added.
At the end of the show hygiene kits were distributed.
