Update: 1:10PM BE a hygiene hero – take action to ensure that hand hygiene is promoted in school, home and at work.
Assistant Minister for Health Alex O’Connor made the comment while officiating at the Global Handwashing Day celebration held at Natadradave Village in Tailevu this morning.
“The hand washing message is not new and I believe that most of us were taught to do this even before we started going to school. However, it is a simple habit we forget that must continue,” Mr O’Connor said.
“Daily hand washing consistently for six weeks becomes a habit.”
He thanked the vanua of Natadradave, Delakado, Vorovoro, Qelekuro and Veicorocoro for their support in allowing this event to take place.
