Spread the Word: October 15 is Global Handwashing Day!
October 15 is Global Handwashing Day! Washing your hands can decrease the risk of waterborne diseases by 20% and the risk of respiratory infection by 25%. It is especially important in places that lack effective water treatment and sewage systems. Please take some time to spread the word about hand washing, support a group that actively works to promote hygiene, or simply remember to wash your own hands with soap.
