Global handwashing day

On Global Handwashing Day, 15th October 2022, you can help us share our message about the importance of improving hygiene and sanitation in communities in Malawi.

Encouraging children to practice good hygiene behaviour which they can share with their families to improve overall community health is an important part of our work to promote handwashing at preschools in Malawi.

Clean, safe water has been crucial especially during COVID-19. Our work has encouraged the practice of handwashing using soap through community waterpoint repairs to increase clean water access and prevent the spread of disease in vulnerable rural areas with limited healthcare.

As a core part of our pre-school and community programme, we have always recognised the importance of hygiene behaviour training, especially handwashing, in improving health and helping children and communities to build greater resilience to disease.

If you want to fundraise or donate please contact us on fundraising@pumpaid.org for more information. With your support, we can provide more preschools and communities with water and soap to keep them healthy.
