55

Water and Life Philippines celebrated Global Hand Washing Day with the children of Manggahan-Lawin urban poor communities in Kawit, Cavite, Philippines. Our event involved over 55 children aged between 4 and 12 years of age and many helpers from our staff, the community, local barangay and sponsors. We demonstrated optimum hand-washing with soap (especially before food and after the CR!) and introduced the global event's importance. The day's activities involved costume-making and a lemon/fork relay race (in costume!) for the older children, party games and clay modelling for the younger ones. 14 winners received GHWD T-shirts and all participants got a goodie bag to take home as a souvenir of the day, with soaps inside (amongst other fun things!) Our kind sponsors were Morcom, Maynilad and SM (cash donation, water tank + soaps). Great fun and a big thank you!
