The Rotaract Club of Evangelical Presbyterian University College (EPUC), Ho on Friday provided hand washing equipment to Tanyigbe Dzafe M.A Primary School after sensitising them on the need to always keep their hands clean.
The donations by the EPUC branch of Rotaract Club, a non-governmental organisation to help pupils keep their hands clean at all times, was in line with this year’s Global Hand washing Day (marked every October 15) on the theme, Clean Hands- a recipe for health.
The members of the Club led by the President, Mr. Felix Amenuvor encouraged the pupils to make hand washing a habit.
“We brought you this hand washing basins in order to help you wash hands under running water and soap so as to completely remove germs before eating.”
“Wash hands with soap at critical times, especially before eating, cooking, or feeding others. Model good hand washing behaviour and remind or help others to always wash their hands before eating,” he advised.
Mr. Amenuvor further told the pupils to make hand washing part of their family meals and asked that they establish places to wash their hands in the household saying, “in your community, in schools, workplaces, and in health facilities, promote effective hand washing behaviour change.”
