BANDUNG. “Wash your hand with soap!” is a common sentence uttered by a mom for her child. However, it’s a simple sentence that has a great effect.
Based on the survey result, 45% to 50% of diarrheal diseases and Acute Respiratory Tract Infection can be prevented through this action. Therefore, hand washing with soap is a habit that must be civilized early.
October 15th is celebrated as Global Handwashing Day. It is a global campaign initiated by United Nations as an effort to decrease the number of under-five mortality and diseases that affect the reduction in quality of human life.
In this opportunity, RZ, Cita Sehat Foundation (CSF), and FKEP Padjadjaran University organized Handwashing with soap action in 5 Integrated Community Development areas in Bandung.
The action was responded well by the local people. Sofi , Cibangkong Headwoman, said “Thank to RZ for the action, we hope that it can be implemented routinely.”***
