HAND-WASHING DAY

The 16th of August 2013

HAND-WASHING DAY

The importance of hand-washing and personal hygiene & cleanliness was the main agenda and activity of the care-groups session in Bethesda Academy today. “Your health is in your hands” has been the topic of the session. A demonstration has been introduced to the children with a glass of clean water which was compared with the same water after washing the hands of one of the children, said to be the one with the cleanest hands. There was a big difference of the water before and after use. Now, all the children were convinced that the water then was not fit for drinking. Then, a short lecture followed the demonstration on how many sicknesses can cause us sick if and when we do not clean our hands and eat with dirty hands. Finally, the 8-Steps of Hand-washing was practiced and taught to all children step-by-step.
