Discussions and Frequently Asked Questions

 There is a shortage of water, elaborately washing hands wastes water! We need to conserve the water for other chores around the house.

Key Response: Proper hand washing is the simplest and least expensive means of preventing infections and the spread of germs. It's easy for a germ on your hand to end up in your mouth.


 Children play in the mud so they need to wash their hands--not adults!

Key Response: All dirty hands carry germs which enter our bodies through our mouths. Remember to wash hands with soap and water after you defecate, clean your baby/child who has just defecated, handling animals and raw foods, also before touching or preparing food, before feeding your child or eating yourself and after blowing your nose or coughing.


 Why isn't rinsing hands with water enough?

Key Response: Rinsing hands with water is not enough- both hands should be rubbed together with soap and water working up some lather on both sides of your hands, your wrists, and between your fingers. Always wash around your nails as that is one place where germs like to hide. Then rinse with water and dry well with a clean towel. If soap is not available, an alternate of ash and water can be used for cleaning your hands. Review the 5 steps for washing hands and the F diagram (refer to Video 1) that shows how germscan be spread.
