In light of Global Handwashing Day locals are being encouraged to support neighboring countries who don’t have access to clean running water and sanitizing products in the fight against COVID-19.

While handwashing is one of the most effective ways to prevent the spread of infectious disease, 40% of the world’s population do not have access to soap and water at home.

However, ChildFund Australia CEO, Margaret Sheehan, says local residents can make a difference by contributing to handwashing facilities in our neighbouring countries.
