Did you wash your hands today?

How to wash hands in our schools in Madagascar
How to wash hands in our schools in Madagascar

Washing hands, has, is, and will be an excellent public health strategy. Low cost and highly effective it is by far the easiest COVID-19 prevention measure to wash hands often - with soap. With soap, because it destroys the lipid membrane of this virus or SARS-CoV-2.

Did you wash your hands?’ is the mantra we all heard, or may have said ourselves a gazillion times. But this is much easier said than done, literally, even if you have running warm water and plenty soap in your bathroom(s).

But what do you do if you have neither running water nor soap? For billions, yes with a B, of humans on our planet this is a reality.

But where there is a will, there is a way. At our last site visit we were joined by a doctor friend from the Ministry of Health. She used her standing to talk to all the school children (and many bystanders) about the importance on how to correctly wash your hands with soap. As you can see in the video, you can use the container with the spigot provided by zahana, or a good old bucket, in this case a new green one, with a cup. (Please click on the YouTube link for the video).

Ps: Both of our schools have access to safe clean drinking water. Fiarenana with a well and Fiadanana with a faucet that is part of our clean safe water system. A 'personal' bar of soap for each student was provided at the visit as well (see website).
