SDG6: COVID-19 Basic Hygiene Resources Project W71CT

SDG6: COVID-19 Basic Hygiene Resources Project W71CT

Providing our vulnerable and marginalised neighbours and organisations with the basic items to combat COVID-19

We all know that washing our hands for at least 20 seconds with soap and warm water helps stop the spread of the Corona Virus as well as other dangerous diseases and viruses. The more of us regularly practicing this, the safer it is for all of us. Yet for some South Africans, access to warm water and soap is a challenge. And so, it becomes OUR challenge, because we need everyone to be able to wash their hands as often as they can!

Project Overview
Provide soap, water for handwashing, basins and kitchen towels to our vulnerable and marginalised neighbours and organisations and create an educational advocacy campaign to ensure regular handwashing.
