Collegevale pupils educated on hand hygiene

Collegevale Primary pupil, Kerissa Naidoo and Simone Naidoo, learn how to wash hands properly.

The world celebrated Global Hand Washing Day, recently. It is a day to observe the importance of hand hygiene and why it should be done throughout the world.

Clean hands can save lives. Thousands of people die every day around the world from infectious diseases. Hands are the main pathways of germ transmission.

Hand hygiene is therefore the most important measure to avoid the transmission of harmful germs and prevent infections. By ensuring our hands are clean we are able to prevent the spread of infectious diseases.

Clinical facilitator, Kerissa Naidoo, addressed the younger pupils about the importance of hand hygiene with a demonstration of the technique and also spoke about nutrition and meals to boost the immune system.

Sr Naidoo (CF) said, “As CF my role in the public eye is to educate and inform community members on the dangers of not practising proper hand hygiene and that infectious diseases can be prevented.”

AAK looks forward to continually playing a role in educating the community and combat preventative infectious diseases.
