Children to be agents of change in handwashing
‘Catch them young’ is the phrase that best describes the focus of the Global Handwashing Day campaign observed with much enthusiasm across Punjab, on 15th October 2020. The aim was to instill in children a keenness for washing hands frequently with soap and water to prevent the spread of infection.
