Southville Studes Join Global Handwashing Day



Basic Education students took part in the celebration of the Global Handwashing Day sponsored by SM Southmall last October 15, 2010. A panel of speakers discussed the importance of handwashing to combat diarrheal and respiratory diseases and deaths.
 
Highlighting the said event was a handwashing demo participated in by the students. The proper procedure of washing hands with soap was illustrated to them step-by step. The program concluded with the ceremonial writing of the students’ promises to make handwashing a habit on a huge freedom wall.
 
The Global Handwashing Day 2010 focused on raising awareness among the younger generation. It is a worldwide initiative supported by more than 80 countries in the world.
