#globalhandwashingday

by Jason Bollinger on October 15th, 2015

​Today is ‪#‎globalhandwashingday‬. Children are especially vulnerable to bacterial infections in developing areas. Teaching them to properly wash their hands reduces the spread of bacteria and disease. In our Community Health Care courses, we train community leaders to build these hand washing "Tepees". Notice the pedal so they don't have to touch the water source with their hands. This eliminates cross contamination. This little one was very excited to wash her hands. In fact she washed them several times just because she could.

It's amazing how the simplest of things can make a tremendous difference. This is some of the Good News that we take to areas of poverty and oppression!
