Global Hand Washing Day today

Full Story: Jaho Jalal

15th of October is being celebrated as the Global Hand washing Day, that is today. Almost two million children lose their lives annually and more than 3.5 million children do not live to celebrate their fifth birthday because of diarrhea and pneumonia. But despite this deadly count, hand washing with soap is seldom practiced in most part of the world. The aim of this day is thus to educate the parents and children about the importance of washing hands, specially after toilets and before / after eating.
