World Water Water

 

 

World Water Water To mark this year’s World Water Day, we emphasize the importance of water during times of uncertainty such as the fast evolving situation with the pandemic outbreak of COVID-19.The world is focused on finding a treatment and a vaccine for COVID-19, while helping the ones already affected as a priority.

The World Health Organization, together with medical experts and local governments can’t emphasize enough the importance of healthy hygiene habits including washing hands frequently with soap and water as a proven preventative measure to contracting the coronavirus.

To date, this is the most recommended preventive action.

To maintain the access to safe water supply, across the world, for use in fighting the spread of COVID-19 and in other day to day usages; every individual has a role to play in preserving and efficiently managing the world’s water resources through responsible usage and minimizing water wastage.

There is no better time to reflect on the importance of water than World Water Day, especially given the pandemic we are all facing now. I cannot stress enough how crucial it is to preserve our water resources as during difficult times, whether this is climate change, natural disasters or pandemics, water proved to be the most valuable resource supporting global communities and providing a much-needed lifeline to all.

All Hands on World Water Day

Hand hygiene is essential to containing the spread of COVID-19 and many other infectious diseases.This World Water Day, and any other day, please remember to wash your hands regularly with water and soap or alcohol-based hand rub.

WHO has these step-by-step visual guidelines to handwashing.


Bringing Healthier Water to Every Family

In some parts of the world there is little or no awareness of good hygiene practices and their role in reducing the spread of disease. However, it is often the case that even when people do have knowledge of good hygiene behaviour, they lack the soap, safe water and washing facilities they need to make positive changes to protect themselves and their community.

This #WorldWaterDay, let’s show our best hand hygiene moments to fight #COVID19.
