 Global Hand Washing Day Underlines the Importance of Washing Hands Thoroughly to Prevent Diseases
Global Hand Washing Day is a worldwide endeavor to create awareness about the importance of washing hands using soap or sanitizer before meals and after using the toilet, as a sure shot way to keep diseases at bay.

Hand washing especially after using the toilet is critical to avoid the spread of harmful bacteria.


It is important that parents help children inculcate such habits early in childhood so that they can grow into healthy adults.

Schools must also do their bit to create awareness about the importance of washing hands and help children adopt such behaviors at a young age.
