And washing hands with soap is one of the most effective and cost-effective ways to prevent diseases which responsible for the majority of deaths in Children. In addition, most schools lack constant water supply and hand-washing kit. In addition, proper hygiene education is a critical step against the problem of contamination infections in children at schools.

SOBUCHE is the most effective mobile solution against the problem of contamination infections. It is easily carried out and does not require clean water arrival and sewage disposal facilities. SOBUCHE is equipped with a support for the soap and paper dispenser to dry hands in a hygienic way.
