Safe Hand Washing Everywhere!
In times of a pandemic, the importance of hand washing becomes particularly significant. Only three out of five people worldwide have a simple possibility to wash their hands. 40 per cent of the world‘s population, or 3 billion people, are not able to wash their hands with soap and water at home.
Nearly three-quarters of people in the countries of the Global South do not have basic hand-washing facilities at home. 43 percent of schools do not have facilities for washing hands with soap and water. This affects 818 million school-age children. In the Global South seven out of ten schools do not have a place for children to wash their hands with soap and water.
