Zoomlion Kick-starts Proper Handwashing Campaign In Basic Schools

In commemoration of Global Handwashing Day, Zoomlion Ghana Limited (ZGL), through its Zoom kids Club programme, has begun an operation to intensify the proper way of handwashing among school children in basic schools across the country.

The goal of this activity is to increase the awareness of handwashing with soap and water in basic schools as an effective way to prevent diseases such as diarrhoea and pneumonia and help save lives.

The exercise, which will be carried out in all the 526 Zoomkids Club basic school members, started on Monday, October 18, 2021, in some beneficiary schools in Adenta, Ashaley Botwe and Madina in Accra.

Since 2008, Global Handwashing Day has been marked yearly on October 15 to promote handwashing with soap and water as an affordable way to prevent disease.

The theme for this year’s celebration is “Our Future is at Hand Let Us Move Together,” and the slogan; “Seconds Save Life.”
Speaking to journalists, the acting Managing Director of Zoomlion, Mr Ernest Kusi, said the operation will involve a demonstration to the school children on the proper way of washing of hands.
